The crested form of this plant is one of the typical "brain cacti", those species whose crest does not have a fan pattern, but rather a more fragmented and twisted pattern, similar to a brain it looks like a real sculpture ! In its normal form this Mammillaria looks like a cluster cactus consisting of cylindrical stems, where its tubercles are placed in a spiral along the body. From hairy areolas come out spines in the shape of a yellow-gold star.

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.
