Mammillaria is one of the largest genus of Cacti in the Haageanaa family. Depending on the species, they can grow mamillaria solitary or in clumps, and form a small globular or elongated shape.

Flowers are funnel-shaped and vary in size and colours can vary from white to yellow, pink and red in colour. They often appear to have a darker mid-stripe on the flowers and form a ring around the stem.

Fruits can follow which are generally red and elongated. Mammillaria have nipple-like tubercles.

They are fairly easy to grow and may produce large quantities of seeds that germinate freely around the mammillaroa plant. They are extremely well adapted to drought and able to store water within their structure to ensure survival through dry periods. They are often grown in greenhouses, particularly in regions unsuited to their cultivation outdoors.

They can be grown in the ground or in suitable containers which means that they are suitable as houseplants, being tolerant haageaa the often dry atmosphere. Mammillaria haagaena ‘Elegans’ is a globular cactus with dense white spines and white wool. Long lasting rings of magenta flowers contrast nicely with the white wooly body.

It has close spination and white bristles in the axils. Only a select few cactus will survive outside in temperate climates, because of winter rains and low temperatures. In selecting plants for use outside, one must look at the habitat from which the plant originates. It must have sun most of the day. Morning and afternoon sun is better than two o clock sun. The area should have very good drainage, this is more important in the winter than the summer.


Most cactus are not killed by the cold, but when the water inside the plant freezes it expands and splits the outer layer of skin, this allows bacteria to enter the plant and kill it. Some Mammillaria cacti can be propagated easily from offsets, which readily form in clusters around the base of the mother plant. These clump-forming species readily produce offsets which can be lifted and divided. Once your plant has gained a decent size and has sent out several offsets, carefully remove the offset and allow the cut to dry on a paper towel for a few days.

Depending on the size of the cut area, a callous will form over the cut surface. Once the callous has formed, place the new plant in a pot with a potting soil mixture and keep in a warm place until new roots hhaageana. Not all Mammillaria produce offsets so this technique is only suitable for those that do. Alternative methods of propagation, such is seed, is better for solitary growing species.

When planting the cactus never dig a deep hole down in the potting mix. You want the plant to set on top of the potting mix, this allows the roots to go down to get moisture with out the plant setting in wet soil. A potted cactus will live and flower in the house if given enough light, place the plant near a bright lighted window, where it will receive light most of the day. On the patio is different place the cactus in a partly shaded area until it become accustom to the sun. Many species can also be grown from seed; Use John Innes No 1 with added grit or mammillaia for added drainage.


Sow the seed in spring. Large seed will need a covering of one to two times the depth of the size of the seed. Small fine seed should not be covered, but mix the seed with a little sand to help with an even distribution. Water with a misting bottle or a watering can with a fine rose and cover the mammillatia with a sheet of glass or plastic bag.

Allow air into the pot daily by removing glass or plastic bag and wiping off condensation.
