If you’re looking for striking and rare houseplants then this one is a front runner! A variegated houseplant, Variegated Gymnocalycium has stunning looks and unusual colours.
A big sun lover, The Variegated Gymnocalycium is native to South America, where it is used to dry, hot weather so it’s low maintenance. When you’re thinking about Gymnocalycium care, always think about the climate it would live in nature and the type of weather it would thrive in - and that will give you a good idea of how to look after it!
Variegated Gymnocalycium is a really unusual indoor plant that will provide a strong accent amongst more leafy foliage plants or as a stand-alone feature on its own in a room. Many people feel a bit intimidated by cacti but they really are easy to look after and really rewarding because of their sculptural looks.
