Species Notes:Comment from Alexander Arzberger -See his photos below...
This little Frailea grows in the eastern region of Paraguay. It is very hard to find, but when you discover the first plant, you can see a lot of them, also under your feet! I was lucky to see really lots of them in all sizes and I estimate over 200.000 plants on this untouched place.
The climate in this region is warm and humid. The rainfalls happen all around the year with a relatively high amount of over 1500 mm with much thaw during the night. The soil is sandy-loamy but permeable. The vegetation consists of grass and small brushes, with no other cacti species present. Most of the Fraileas grow in half shadow under the brushes and only few are exposed to full sun.
