|phylloclades are typical orssichiana form, long with 3 acutely tipped, forward facing dentations along each margin. Apical dentations are largest. Areole notching is shallow to mildly steep. Dolly Kölli viewed this species' cultivar as one of the best because of flower color, form and the plant's branching, lush growth habit. This is a pure S. orssichiana derived from wild forms.
