Introducing the copper king cactus, known as Mammillaria elongata Copper King, which is a vibrant member of the Mammillaria genus. The copper king cactus gets its name because of its elongated cylindrical stems and the coppery coloration that distinguishes it from other varieties. 

Native to Mexico, Mammillaria elongata 'Copper King' is a bright green plant with creamy tan and orangey copper spines emerging from its conical tubercles.

The copper king’s 8 inches tall central stem produces offset rings, creating a hazy effect along the stems that resemble golden hour light.

The plant's color gradient creates a unique appearance.

The flowers of Mammillaria elongata copper king bloom in late winter to early spring with sweet, mini flowers of white, pale yellow, or pink.

The copper king cactus is a popular choice for cactus enthusiasts due to its unique and attractive features.

When it comes to the Mammillaria elongata Copper King care, it prefers bright, indirect light, so placing it near a window with filtered sunlight would be ideal. With minimal watering, it's important to allow the soil to dry out between waterings to prevent overwatering and root rot.  

As for soil, a well-draining cactus mix is recommended. When grown indoors, the Mammillaria copper king thrives in temperatures between 60-75°F. When grown outdoors, it is typically suited for zones 10-11. 

For copper king cactus propagation, you can do so by taking offsets or pups that grow at the base of the plant and replanting them in well-draining soil. Just make sure to allow the offsets to callous over for a few days before planting them. 

The Mammillaria elongata copper king features a striking copper coloration on its spines, while the Mammillaria elongata pink nymph showcases a delicate pink hue. Both varieties are popular choices for cactus enthusiasts looking to add unique colors to their collections.
