Parodia magnifica (Balloon Cactus ) was previously named Notocactus Magnificus ‘Balloon Cactus.’ This spiny, balloon-shaped plant is native to South America. This spherical cactus has blue-green foliage with golden-colored spines. They usually grow in clusters in their native habitat.

Balloon cacti can grow up to 12 inches in diameter or more depending on its environmental factors, such as exposure to sunlight and its mix. Ballon cactus can bloom with yellow flowers sitting on top of the plant. This usually happens in spring and summer.

If planted as an indoor plant, make sure to place them near a sunny window to get optimal light coverage. Just like any succulent plant, they are extremely drought-tolerant. In that case, water only when the succulent mix is completely dry.

Fertilize only during their growing period. You can grow them in USDA Hardiness Zones 9b-11b at 25-50 degrees F.


Available in 4″ pot . Plants vary, but you will receive a very similar plant to the one pictured.
