This tiny globular plant grows up to 6 cm in height and is known by its common name “Twin-spined cactus”. It is a relatively rapid-growing cactus that is virtually covered by spines. Twin spined cactus contains 20 thin white radial spines that resemble bristles and a few longer crimson center spines in the tiny areolas. Greenish-white or yellowish flowers appear in tiny clusters that look extremely pleasing to the eyes.

Growth Rate
This cactus is relatively fast-growing.

Flowering
Mammillaria painteri produces mesmerizing greenish-white or pale light yellow-colored flowers during spring and summer.

Watering
In the summer, water frequently. However, keep your cactus dry and in a well-ventilated area during winters. Make sure to not overwater this variety as it can lead to root rot.

Soil
Twin spine cactus prefers regular cactus potting mix, which is quite porous.

Hardiness
This Mammillaria species is frost-sensitive. So, if you live in areas with temperatures less than 10.4° F (-12° C), it is best to keep this plant in an indoor setting.

Light
Twin-spined cactus requires bright and filtered light. Exposure to sunlight for an extended period of time may cause burns.

Sea Anemone Cactus

Fascinating cactus! The name 'painteri' caught my attention because I am an artist, so I decided to take a look at it. It resembles a sea anemone in plant form with long, thin tubercles that grow in different directions. And it's nearly spineless so it's finger friendly.
