Melocactus conoideus


Melocactus conoideus grows in the transition area between the following habitats: Savanna (Cerrado), rocky upland (Campo rupestre ) and dry thorn forest (Caatinga ) mainly among sparse low shrubs and herbs in quartz gravel. The very squat stem of this species is thought to be an adaptation to minimise the effects of the frequent fires common in is its areal, although it can still get scorched on occasion.
