Mammillaria Tezontle
Cultivation and propagation: Somewhat difficult to cultivate and like many such species, offers a challenge to the grower. During the summer it is best to keep the plants outside where the temperature can rise to over 30° C with no harm to the plant, recommended for any collection that needs lots of light with ample airflow.
Growth rate: It is a small growing, but easily flowering species.
Soils: Use an open and free draining mineral compost with little organic matter (peat, humus) that allows therefore roots to breath (as it is rot prone).
Repotting: Repotting every 2-3 years. Use a small pot with good drainage.
Watering: It likes a winter's rest and should be kept almost completely dry during the winter months. From March onwards the plant will begin to grow and watering should be increased gradually until late May when the plant should be in full growth. Water regularly during the summer as long as the plant pot is allowed to drain and not sit in a tray of water. From late September watering should be reduced to force the plant to go into a state of semi dormancy. Keep dry with ample airflow in winter. In the rest period no high atmospheric humidity!!

Hardiness: Grown specimens resist to -4°C for a short time, but it is best to keep above 5° C to avoid ugly spots on the plant epidermis.

Exposition: Needs full sun avoiding only the harshest summer sun, if kept too dark they may become overly lush and greener and could be prone to rotting due to over watering. Tends to bronze in strong light, which encourages flowering and heavy wool and spine production.
