Mammillaria toluca is a compact growing cactus. 'Toluca' has no spines or one or two small spines per arele and produces beautiful magenta blooms
Mammillaria cactus plants bear spines that are arranged according to the Fibonacci sequence, which states that each lower row of tubercles equals the sum of the previous two rows. This rule gives the plants an orderly patterned appearance when viewed from above.
'Toluca' require a small well-draining shallow container, cactus mix or a blend of potting soil and sand, and moderately dry soil except during the growing season. The light should be bright but not of the hottest, searing rays of midday. Supplemental fertilizing is not necessary but some cactus food applied in spring when active growth resumes can help produce healthier plants.
It is an excellent plant for garden rockery settings, desert type landscapes, patios and botanical gardens
