The mature size of this plant is 10″ diameter and hopefully it will color up more as it ages because the color of the plant I received is not as intense as those of mature plants. It should have bright yellow centers with a silvery-green outer band. Spines are soft and rubbery. Blooms in spring with a pink-orange flower.
Pronunciation: a-GAH-vee isth-MEN-sis
Species Meaning: Of or from an isthmus, a narrow strip of land bounded by water on both sides (i.e., the Isthmus of Tehuantepec)
Full sun. Only water when dry in summer. Use a very free-draining organic rich soil.
