@docthrill I'm not sure how they color them, but I know the color will fade as it grows. I wish the color was true to the plant😃

@docthrill I've seen them sprayed with dye (which fades and bleeds off with waterings) before, but these look more opaque, like they were painted. The needles are naturally pure white. This variety is difficult to find un-colored.

You’re right @beatnikcrab they do look painted when zoomed up

@KariSamuel I'm not sure how they do it but I did read they are dyed somehow😀

Yeah, I just read that they are dipped in dye. Any new growth will not have the coloring effect. https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/cacti-succulents/scgen/desert-gems-cactus-care
