Vatricania Guentheri is a short, shrubby cactus that is perfect for bringing a new lease of life to an office or sitting room shelf. Native to the mountainous terrain of eastern Bolivia where it stores large amounts of water for months, V. Guentheri is far from a fussy houseplant, in-fact it is famously easy to care for, making it a great starter plant.

Slightly bulbous in shape, the exterior is covered with outward growing woolly hairs. These are lusciously coloured in a golden-brown giving the cactus a distinctive look. If cared for correctly they can develop delicate, white flowers once mature.
