“Gymnocalycium” Genus (Chin Cactus)

Gymnocalycium Genus Image

Gymnocalycium is native to South America. It comes from the Greek word “gymnos,” meaning “naked,” and “kalyx,” meaning “bud.” Gymnocalycium is also known as the “chin-like cactus” due to its slight punctuation along the ribs. Any unknown cactus with flower buds were typically identified to belong under this genus. Gymnocalycium flowers are identified to be “naked” without any spines, wool, or bristles. This genus prefers an environment with high temperatures and thrives more in a greenhouse.
