Mammillaria atroflorens Family: Cactaceae. A nice green bodied species with white tufts of hair on the big tubercules. This species is noted for its long spines. They aren't that long yet but as the plant matures the new spines will get consistently longer. Flowers are pink and produced throughout the growing season. Mature plants can be 5" or more in diameter and may form clumps in time. This species is included in M. mystax by some botanists. Takes normal cactus care. Protect from frost.
You will receive a plant shown in the last image or one similar. Plant shown in a 3.5" pot.
Important Shipping Information
- PLANTS ARE SHIPPED BARE ROOT If you want me to send them in pots send me a message to discuss. Extra charges due to increased shipping costs will apply.
- Immediate Payment (eBay only) Sorry! I can no longer offer a delayed purchase option as the multichannel inventory management system I have started using requires this setting.
- No Delayed Shipping (eBay only) Once you pay I have to (and WILL) ship within 3 business days or eBay will lower my seller rating. I used to have a way to delay shipping but can no longer do this for the same reason as #2 above. Feel free to message me before buying to see if we can figure something out here, no promises though.
- Winter Shipping If you live in a cold climate consider including a 96 hour heat pack in your order during the cold months. I have them as a listing. Just add it to your order. If you don’t see them just message me.
