Parodia magnifica

Parodia magnifica is a species of flowering plant in the Cactaceae family, native to southern Brazil. It is a cactus growing to 7–15 cm (3–6 in) tall by 45 cm (18 in) broad, with heavily ribbed, spherical to columnar, spiny and hairy stems, bearing pale yellow flowers in summer.[1]

In cultivation it must be kept above 10 °C (50 °F), so in temperate regions is grown under glass. It has gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.[2]
