Mammillaria candida

(This plant comes in a 3.5 inch 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 candida

Blooming season: Spring.

Cultivation and propagation: Mammilloydia candida is a slow-growing, clustering species that reproduces easily by cutting. It is a great starter plant for the cactus grower, that builds up into a dense cluster of stems brightened by white spines.

Soils: It likes very porous standard cactus mix soil with little organic matter (peat, humus).

Watering: Water regularly in summer, but do not overwater (very wet-sensitively, especially in light of its succulent root system). Keep dry with ample airflow in winter. In the rest period no high atmospheric humidity!!

Hardiness: It is quite frost resistant if kept dry, hardy as low as -5° C.

Exposition: Outside bright sun, filtered sunlight or afternoon shade, inside it needs bright light, and some direct sun. Subject to sunburn if exposed to direct sun for too long. Tends to bronze in strong light, which encourages flowering and heavy wool and spine production.
