Notocactus roseoluteus is probably only a variant in flower colour of the very variable Parodia mammulosa.
It has stems to 18 cm in diameter, usually solitary or slowly branching from the base with Yellow/brown spines, and pink/light salmon flowers with yellow throat up to 8 cm in diameter.
This plant seems to incorporate some of the features of both Parodia mammulosa and Parodia herteri. Both flower colour and spination seem to be midway between the two species. The plant can ultimately reach the size of P. herteri but it flowers at a much smaller size and withstands some winter coldness.
Apical, particularly large, bell-shaped, glossy, pink in shades of salmon with yellow centres, up to 8 cm in diameter.
All of the plants will be shipped bare root.
Suitable for the home or a greenhouse, During winter's rest period they should be dry and cool, it is frost resistant to -4°C but thrives best with additional heat, they like only a short winter's rest.
If the soil is allowed to be dry for too long root loss could follow but equally the same result would occur if the plants are both wet and cold, rot easily if the substrate is wet and cold. Prefers filtered bright light with ample airflow.
Will enjoy regular water in summer. Best if watered with rain water, an acid compost and iron feed help to delay the onset of basal corking. A well grown plant is a fresh glossy grass- green, contrasting with reddish spines.
Usually by seeds as it seldom produces offsets.

Your plant will be meticulously bubblewrapped and shipped in a sturdy box. Most 2" plants
are shipped in their original plastic pot with soil. Fragile and big 4" plants are shipped bareroot to ensure their
safety. When opening your package, some soil may be loose in the box. Plant orders are shipped within 3-5 days
depending on availability of the plant. We ship our plants Monday through Friday, all twelve months of the year! If
you need your order urgently, please message us so we can upgrade your shipping (additional cost applied).
Here is our blog about the shipping process and packaging. We do not ship outside of the continental United States.
*** All of our packages are sterilized before leaving the door.
We only ship out beautiful, healthy plants! Please track your package and open it immediately upon
arrival. If you receive your package and are not satisfied, please message us immediately. Fragile plants such as
bearpaw, baby toe, etc. may break or loose a few of their leaves during transport. Please contact us for
replacements if your plants are severely damaged. We'll try our best to accommodate you.
Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year.
Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended. Bright, filtered
light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Never let your succulents sit in water. Do
NOT water on the leaves. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour
off any excess water after a few minutes.
The hotter it is outside, the faster your soil will dry out, so you’ll need to water more often if you live in a hot
area. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended
periods; protect from frost to prevent scarring.
