Cactus, White Thimbles

Fascinating little cactus has a large mother plant with smaller babies all around.  Plants are green with showy white "hair". Soft to the touch, but may have a long brown prickle or two on the mother plant.  Can be handled gently without gloves.  Perfect for miniature deserts or southwestern scenes.  Blooms with paper-like pale yellow flowers.  Plants grow to about 1" tall and 3" wide and love the sun and heat. Very well-drained soil or a cactus soilless potting mix is a must.  Watering is summer is okay, but must be kept dry in winter.  Cold hardy in the ground to USDA zones 8-11. A very cool little plant.
