This listing features our beautiful rooted Thimble Mammillaria Cactus in 2 inch or 4 inch pot. Mammillaria gracilis v. fragilis is a charming, tiny cactus that is native to Central Mexico. Its small round bodies are densely covered with interlaced white spines, that gives the impression of white “thimbles”. Clusters vigorously to form large mats. In late winter it features creamy yellow flowers. Requires gritty succulent or cactus potting soil. Prefers bright light and good airflow. Water when soil is completely dry to the touch. When one of the little bodies breaks off, it can be propagated into a new plant. Use in a fairy garden or in an alpine trough garden. All of the plants will be shipped bare root.
Full Sun. A well-drained succulent mix. Suitable for growing Indoors. Generally non-toxic to humans and animals
