Mammillaria elongata “Ladyfinger Cactus”
3” potted in terra cotta.
Mammillaria elongata, “Ladyfinger Cactus” is native to Mexico and is a small clumping cactus covered in tight, star-shaped whorls of yellow/golden spines. Offsets of this plant are very easy to detach and propagate. If provided adequate sunlight and proper care, they form small, bell-shaped, light yellow or pink flowers in spring.
Like most cactus, these prefer bright, direct sunlight (6-8 hours daily) and watering only when soil is completely dry. Pot in a well-draining cactus/succulent soil mix.
