Mammillaria elongata. Cactaceae. It is a cactus with clustered, cylindrical stems up to 15 cm tall. The stems are elongated, finger-like and up to 3 cm in diameter. The spines are variable in number, white to golden yellow or brown, more or less recurved and up to 1.5 cm long. Sowing : Fill a pot with a moist, gritty, loam-based compost, or cacti compost. Gently firm down and level the surface. Scatter your mixed cactus seeds over the surface, taking care not to sow them too thickly. Gently sprinkle a thin layer of vermiculite or fine grit over the seeds, covering the whole surface of the compost. Leave the pot in a greenhouse or on a warm windowsill, covered with a clear plastic bag to preserve soil moisture. Seedlings will develop within a few weeks. Remove the plastic bag and water when the compost becomes dry, but spray the surface with water regularly, to keep it moist. Locality: Ex Hort. Harvest: August 2021
