Formerly known as Echinofossulocactus guerraianus  is one of the many geographical form of the widespread and  morphologically variable Stenocactus fasciculatus. Many of its morphological and geographical variant was early classified as different independent species, but nowadays all this plant are considered part of a multiform species, where each form is linked to others by populations of plants with intermediate characteristics. The name Stenocactus guerraianus is used to indicate plants characterized by flattened, ferocious-looking spines with one very long milk-white central spine directed upwards, but similar plants with wide and flat milk-white central spines are commonly found in other populations and to all intents and purposes it is a synonym of Stenocactus crispatus. The wavy dark matt green ribs contrasting vividly with the pale wool of the new areoles. The plant still found in cultivation under the name of Stenocactus guerraianus are quite variable and the dissimilarity among seedlings spination may be considerable.

It is a solitary plant, globular, to 8” broad, dark-green with woolly apex. It has usually 8 radial spines, white to yellowish, basally brown; Upper spines .75-1.25” long, flattened. And edge spines, 2 lateral roundish to 1.25” long. Central spine- 1, milky white approximately, 1.5” long. Flowers are 1.25” long, clear pink to violet with white edge.

Stenocactus guerraianus is easy to to care cactus, recommended for any collection that needs lots of light with ample airflow. It is small growing and easy to care and very willing to flower. Because of it’s small size makes a great potted plant specimen, great for beginning collectors.  Water thoroughly during the active growing season (spring and summer), water when the top 1” of soil feels dry to the finger. Do not soak the soil during the dormant period (Winter). Be careful, excessive watering can make root and/or stem to rots. Make sure there is good air circulation between plants. Care must be taken with watering as they tends to become swollen and untidy in growth habit if given too much water and shade.  Outside bright sun it likes strong sunshine, but is tolerant and do well with light shade during the hot summer months, inside it needs bright light, and some direct sun. Subject to sunburn if exposed to direct sun for too long. Tends to bronze in strong light, which encourages flowering and heavy wool and spine production.

    Received after 3 days I ordered. They arrived in a box. All wrapped loosely by used newspapers. You can see the roots with some soil still attached. I planted them in pots the next day. I put them in my sun room. Hope they will grow healthy and see the flowers soon.
