Get ready to be amazed by the Finger Cactus - also known as Dolichothele longimamma 'monstruosa' has its accepted scientific name as Mammillaria longimamma 'monstrose'! This round cactus is a real showstopper with its long, clustered tubercles that give it such personality. Its vibrant green hue is simply stunning, and it grows at a leisurely pace. 

The best part is that this little guy grows slowly so you can watch it grow and develop over time. These plants favor a well-drained soil mix with specialized cactus potting soil, so it's easy to find a succulent potting mix at Planet Desert.  Keep up with watering during its active growing period in the spring and summer, but don't go too crazy because all thick-rooted species are prone to rotting. Don't let those long tubercles get flabby!  

During winter dormancy, reduce watering and watch as your plant may come right up to the top of the soil. And last but not least, give this attention-grabbing cactus some partial shade for optimal performance.  

So go ahead and add the Finger Cactus - Mammillaria longimamma 'monstrose' to your collection!
