Description:

A solitary globular cactus, slightly depressed at the apex, which over time can form small suckers at the base. It is a low-growing plant that does not exceed 7 cm in height. On its bright green stem, cylindrical tubercles are formed with cream-yellow areoles, from which numerous white spines emerge, that are soft to the touch, up to 6 mm long, densely covering the whole body of the plant. In spring, M. humboldtii produces a beautiful crown of flowers, that range in color from pink-fuchsia to purple.

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.
