Gymnocalycium vatteri var. paucispinum is a variety of cactus belonging to the Gymnocalycium genus within the Cactaceae family. Gymnocalycium species are native to South America, particularly Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay, and Brazil. This particular variety, Gymnocalycium vatteri var. paucispinum, has distinct features that make it a sought-after plant among cactus enthusiasts.

This cactus variety typically forms solitary globular-shaped plants with a flattened top. The stems are usually greenish-gray to bluish-green and have distinctive ribs covered in tubercles or small bumps. The tubercles may have a woolly or hairy appearance, depending on the specific plant and its growing conditions.

Gymnocalycium vatteri var. paucispinum is named "paucispinum" due to its characteristic of having fewer spines, they are usually single spined. Spines are generally short and can be varying in color, often white, yellowish, or brown, and might occur in clusters or be somewhat scattered along the ribs.

Gymnocalycium vatteri var. paucispinum requires well-draining soil and thrives in bright sunlight. It is drought-tolerant and prefers a dry, arid climate. However, protection from intense sunlight during extremely hot periods might be necessary, especially in regions with scorching summers.

This variety is generally adaptable and can tolerate a range of temperatures, though it's best suited for cultivation in regions with mild winters. Protection from frost and freezing temperatures is recommended to prevent damage.
