Mammillaria elegans, native to Mexico, is a globular cactus with dense white spines and white wool. Long-lasting rings of majenta flowers provide beautiful contrast to white, woolly body. Forms clusters in time. Requires cactus soil with excellent drainage. Prefers bright light for best form. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to touch. Refrain from watering on overcast, cold winter days. Protect from frost.
Part of what makes succulents so fascinating are the myriad ways they express themselves throughout the year, depending on light, season, temperature, soil, and hydration. For those and other reasons, the plants you receive may not look exactly as they appear on our website.
