Product Description

Mammillaria gracilis v. fragilis is a charming, miniature Mammilliaria native to Central Mexico. Tiny globular bodies are densely covered with interlaced white radial spines, giving the impression of white "thimbles". Clusters prolifically to form large mats. Satiny creamy yellow flowers in late winter. Requires porous cactus soil. Prefers bright light with ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Cold tolerance to 25 degrees Fahrenheit, however, best to provide protection from frost to prevent scarring.

    Great cactus!

    I got this cactus from Hirts about 3 months ago. It arrived much larger than what is pictured- almost the whole 2.5" pot was full! When repotting this cactus, be aware that it is very fragile and there are many small pieces that will fall off. Most of the pieces that fell off for me already had roots growing, so I stuck them back in the soil and supported them with a small stick so they wouldn't fall over. It is a great cactus to add to your collection. Very unique!
