Mammillaria Elegans Cactus 13cm pot
With a columnar stem in a rich green hue, what most sets Mammillaria elegansapart is its tightly packed, concentrically arranged tubercles, from each of which a starburst of creamy spines emerges. Viewed altogether, these spines form a mesmerizing layer of almost wooly texture, lending at once both a swirled and a polka dotted appearance to this truly elegant specimen. During the spring and summer months, bright magenta blooms will ring the apex of the stem, adding yet another layer of delicate appeal sure to find a place in even the most comprehensive succulent collection.
Native to Mexico, Mammillaria eleganscan reach up to 20 cms in height when provided with ample, bright to direct sunlight and a watering routine that allows the soil to dry out completely in between drinks. Like all cacti, overwatering can predispose this variety to rot – to mitigate this risk, be sure to utilize a porous soil mixture within a well-draining pot, ensure ample airflow around the stem and soil surface, and water thoroughly yet infrequently.The plant is sold in a plastic grow pot. Add a decorative pot to complete the look.
