Ariocarpus is a small genus of Mexican rock cactus.
They have curious rock-like forms and textures, and blend very well
with the soil and rocks in their native habitat. They have no spines and
the rock like texture has the side effect to reflect the heat of the sun
and give them some insulation in summer. They also have a strong
turnip-like root that, according to some authors, is able to contract
during drought, and somewhat pull them closer to the ground.
