Mammillaria vetula spp. gracilis


Out of stock

New!! Commonly known as the “thimble cactus”, this little Mammillaria from Mexico offsets readily, growing in clusters. The individual stems can be up to 13 cm in length and 3 cm in diameter. It has small creamy flowers that bloom in Spring, or in late Summer to Autumn. It is a very hardy plant which can be grown in full sun or part shade, and is both dry and light-frost tolerant. It requires a well-draining soil with moderate watering in Summer and should be kept completely dry in Winter.

Note: The offsets might detach in postage, but should grow readily when planted.
