Pediocactis winkleri

This tiny cactus in nature looks nothing like tall or multi-headed blobs often seen in cultivation, when grown on grafts. Plants grow in gravely sand and barely reaching above the ground level. Plants are locally abundant, but threatened by cattle ranching in this area. Cows plow this gentle soils with they hoofs into complete obviation that will require decades to recover.
