The produce small flowers that are a pink to creamy yellow and they bloom in the spring time. They thrive in well draining soil and can be kept indoors or outdoors.

They must not be exposed to prolonged dampness and sitting water

Item arrived healthy and well packed. Other companies have poor packing methods. Thank you for caring enough to make sure that your plants arrive in good condition.
Look almost better in person.
Clicked 2 of these by mistake but ended up very happy with them. Great aesthetics.
Mammillaria gracilis cv. oruga
Delightfully aesthetic. The contrast between the dark green and white is striking. A garden full of this cactus would be wonderful.
