Stenocactus Multicostatus is native to Mexico, specifically to the Chihuahua, Coahuila and Durango, Zacatecas, and the Nueva Leon regions. The dry meadowlands suit it well, and it adapts well to draughts by hiding in the rocky soil. Stenocactus multicostatus more often known as Echinofossulocactus multicostatus is a low-growing cactus with a lot of narrow, very acute and straight or wavy ribs, densely pleated together giving a wrinkled look to its near globular shape, with short 6 to 18 soft flattened brownish spines, arranged crosswise, but there is a great variation among plants of different origin both in spination, body shape and number of ribs.
