Mammillaria prolifera ssp multiceps (100 seeds)


Out of stock

Mammillaria prolifera ssp multiceps. It is a small, spherical to egg-shaped cactus attaining a height of approximately 6 cm. It is easily recognized by the flexible, hairlike, radial spines that cover its surface. It blooms freely for many weeks at a time in spring, and for months after that its brilliant, scarlet fruits will be popping out to decorate it. 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
