Melocactus conoideus is one of the funkiest cacti! They are native to parts of Brazil, and are extremely drought tolerant. The unique characteristic trait about this cactus is that they're a cephallium cactus. When these cacti get bigger they'll form a big red bump (inflorescence) at the top. From there the inflorescence will continue to grow. They can even get bigger than the plant itself!
These will thrive in a bright space, the brighter the better. Since they are drought tolerant, you'll want to let these really dry out in between waterings. Water once every 3-4 weeks or when the soil is completely dry. When re-potting use a semi-coarse cactus medium. These plants are known to grow very slow!
