Echinocactus grusonii brevispinus
Echinocactus grusonii var. brevispinus is a very short spined mutantant of the well known "Golden barrel cactus" that - except for the spines - it is identical in shape and size to the standard species. The standard form is very popular and widely grown, while the beautiful brevispinus variant is still rare in cactus collection. Can also get very big making a spectacular specimen.
