This fun little cactus is a unique plant that blooms and will eventually form tiny mounds. This plant will be sent to you in a 3.5” pot to protect the roots from damage. The plant you receive will look very similar to these pictures. Mammillaria duwei is a small growing but easily flowering species that will make clumps given the best conditions.
- Flowers: Yellowish/cream to light yellow, about 20 mm long and in diameter.
- Blooming season: Flowers readily, and for a long period from spring to the early summer.
- Hardiness: Reputedly sensitive to frost, but less so if kept on the dry side prior to, and during, cold weather (hardy to -5° C for short periods). However, warmth throughout the year will increase the grower's success (minimum 5° to 8°C during the rest season).
- 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.
