M. montensis in its variegated shape is a unique and distinctive cactaceae exemplar, thanks to its variegation. Its globose stem has an opaque green hue which alternates with the yellowish variegation, creating a strong contrast. It has very deep rhomboidal tubercles among which grows a white down. On the tip of every tubercle is present a white and woolly areola from which the spines come out: the radials are thin, of white or yellowish colour whilst the central ones have a dark tonality, are much more robust than the radial ones and longer.

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.
