Mammillaria sempervivi

Mexican cactus with a globular shape, slightly depressed at the top, which in the wild tends to remain almost completely underground to protect itself from atmospheric agents. In cultivation, on the other hand, it shows off its beautiful dark green color and the prominent pyramidal tubercles, pleasantly separated from each other by abundant white down. Radial spines with the appearance of microscopic whitish bristles emerge from the tubercles, accompanied by much stronger and darker central spines, tending to reddish-brown. Around the top of the cactus, small but pretty pink flowers bloom in spring, with a characteristic darker central line, which surround the plant, crowning it with a touch of vivacity and delicacy at the same time!
