Mammillaria nunezii ssp. bella
Mammillaria Bella is a clustery cactus with variable habit and heavy supination that has showy carmine flowers. 'Bella' stays usually solitary and has 4-6 white central spines with red tips.
A non-demanding species, M.Bella is a slow growing cactus. It requires moderate watering in summers and no water in the winter season. High level of sunlight is required for good flowering and spine maturation. It is susceptible to sunburn if moved quickly from shade to complete sunlight and hence needs time for adapting.
It is an excellent plant for garden rockery settings, desert type landscapes, patios and botanical gardens
