This is one of the Mammillaria commonly called "Owl Eye Cactus", known for dichotomous branching (forking or dividing into two parts).

Cultivation: This plant is easy to cultivate but very slow growing. Cultivate it in a well drained and mineral substratum. Water regularly. It need full sun, so it keep a compact and flat shape. It does not tolerate intense cold, but tolerates some cold if kept dry. Frequent transplantations of the young plants protect the lower part of the stem.

Great cactus/succulent source

My experiences with Planet Desert have been awesome. My plants have all arrived quickly without a single pebble out of place, very healthy. I would highly recommend them.
