Mammillaria Spinosissima


Central Maxico




The Mammillaria spinosissima  has solitary cylindrical stems to 30 cm tall and 10 cm diameter, with bristly white central spines, cream radials and carmine-pink flowers 2cm long.


Mammillaria species like most cacti they're drought tolerant and need very little care and attention to grow well . Plenty of sunshine will keep this cacti more than happy. Provide bright, even light to encourage tight growth and flowering. Some shade during a hot summers day can be helpful to prevent sunburn.

Allow the soil mix to become nearly dry between watering, but then water thoroughly. Suspend watering in the winter, but mist occasionally. Not enough sunlight and over-watering are common mistakes.

Use pot with good drainage and a very porous potting media.

Feed every 4 weeks with a high potassium fertiliser during summer
