BOTANICAL NAME_ Mammillaria elegans, native to Mexico and United States

AKA_ Pin Cushion Cactus, Nipple Cactus

FEATURES_ Mammillaria elegans is a globular cactus with dense white spines and white wool. Rings of crimson flowers in late winter provide beautiful contrast to a white, woolly body. Compact, clustering habit. Protect from frost to prevent scarring.

PLANT PERSONALITY_ Neat, uniform and minimalist.  Strives for perfection and order. Perfect desktop plant for a sunny office or outdoor porch that receives lots of morning sun to early afternoon sun.




Cement planter is 10cm w x 10.5cm h using a quality gritty mix perfect for cacti.

This cactus loves being covered or sheltered outdoors (keep out of rain) but is not frost hardy, so bring indoors for winter and place in a bright, sunny spot (south facing window). No need to water during this time as it is dormant in winter, just mist every few weeks. Easy to grow and care for.  Mammillaria need up to 4 hours exposure to bright sunlight, excellent drainage, and infrequent watering to prevent rot (seldom in winter).  Fertilise during the growing season at 1/4 recommended dosage.
