Mammillaria bocasana v. multilanata Powder Puff Cactus

(This plant comes in a 3.5" pot. You will receive a very similar plant to the one in the picture. It may or may not be blooming at the time of your purchase. The plant is shipped in its pot to prevent any damage to the roots).

Mammillaria Bocasana v. Multilanata goes by the common name “Powder Puff Cactus”. This succulent is star-fished and rosette-shaped, one that grows dark green fleshy leaves. Mexico is its native region and Cactaceae is the biological family group. Powder Puff Cactus is a winter-dormant succulent that can grow between 3 to 5 inches. 

Growth Rate

The plant is one of the fastest-growing cacti and can grow up to several inches in a year.

Flowering

The succulent produces flowers that are bright pink or white. Spring & summer seasons are the blooming time for this Mammillaria cactus variety. 

Watering and Feeding

The succulent is drought tolerant, but it thrives better if watered regularly during its blooming season. During winter, reduce watering to once in 2 to 3 weeks. Fertilize the plant every 2 to 4 weeks with a half-strength cactus fertilizer during the growing season. 

Soil

Powder Puff Cactus requires sandy and well-drained soil. The plant does not grow well in a soggy soil mixture.

Hardiness

Mammillaria Bocasana v. Multilanata grows best in the spring and summer seasons. The frost tolerance of this pretty cactus variety is anywhere between -12.2° C (10° F) to 10° C (50° F). Furthermore, it features hardiness of 8a to 11b.

Light

Powder Puff Cactus requires full sun and part shade. If growing outdoors, make sure it receives afternoon sunlight every day. If indoors, plant it near a sunny window.

Propagation

Use the seeds or offsets for its propagation. For the seed method, wait until the plants have faded. For offsets, choose one that is 1/3rd the size of the parent plant.

Once the powder puff cactus matures, it looks like multiple cottony balls of fur clumped together! It gives your home or gardens a much-needed unique look.
