Also known as "Monkey's Tail" this plant is endemic to the Bolivian department of Santa Cruz in the province of Florida. Bolivia is about 30 kilometers east of Samaipata on the Cerro El Fraile mountain. This is a rare and fantastic plant with very long white and soft hair like spines.

Flowers last 3-4 days and bloom in a right red color. Partial sun is perfect, watering once a week from March-October and November-February. Let plant rest but be sure the soil does not dry out.
