It is a very particular and elegant cactaceae, of a perfectly spherical shape, completely covered with long candid white spines, rather thin and sometimes hooked. This clear and bright appearance makes the cactus resemble a snowball or a cotton swab, although, with the spines so curved, it is not as soft and harmless, as it might seem! At the beginning of spring, the elegance of Mammillaria senilis is accentuated by the strong contrast, that the large, very lively red flowers create with the delicacy of the whiteness of the body.

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.
