Description:

Pleasant globe-shaped cactus, slightly depressed at the apex, which can become columnar with growth. Of a beautiful emerald green, it is equipped with very pronounced conical tubercles, almost pointed, from which small roundish yellowish areoles protrude. Its radial spines are needle-like, rather long, thin and bent to embrace the stem, whilst the central ones, rather sparse, are longer and brownish, almost black. In spring the charm of this wonderful Mammillaria will be amplified by small but graceful pale yellow flowers that will crown the apex of the cactus.

Plant care:

It likes an exposure to full sun in rather airy locations.

It is preferable to keep it at mild temperatures and never below 5 °C, for this reason it is recommended to shelter it during the winter period.

Water moderately but only when the soil is completely dry. It is enough to water it once a week in spring and summer, reduce watering to once every two months in autumn, and to suspend it completely in winter.

The best soil is a well-draining one, even better if further enriched with inert materials such as pumice, sand or lapilli.

They do not need frequent fertilization, it is sufficient to dilute the fertilizer with watering once a year.
