Gymnocalycium pflanzii v. marquezii An attractive species with nicely curved spines. It is notable in turning a beautiful reddish to purple color during the cooler months or under times of stress. The color of the plants also depends a lot on light with higher light giving more purple.
It is important to understand that the plant will become green during the summer and turn purple again in the winter (under proper conditions).
Easy to grow, just give normal succulent care of good light and careful watering. Protect from frost.
You will receive a plant shown in the last image. Plants shown in a 3.5" pot. Plants for sale have turned green for summer.
Important Shipping Information
- PLANTS ARE SHIPPED BARE ROOT If you want me to send them in pots send me a message to discuss. Extra charges due to increased shipping costs will apply.
- Immediate Payment (eBay only) Sorry! I can no longer offer a delayed purchase option as the multichannel inventory management system I have started using requires this setting.
- No Delayed Shipping (eBay only) Once you pay I have to (and WILL) ship within 3 business days or eBay will lower my seller rating. I used to have a way to delay shipping but can no longer do this for the same reason as #2 above. Feel free to message me before buying to see if we can figure something out here, no promises though.
- Winter Shipping If you live in a cold climate consider including a 96 hour heat pack in your order during the cold months. I have them as a listing. Just add it to your order. If you don’t see them just message me.
