2 in stock

Mammillaria prolifera. Cactaceae. It is a low-growing cactus forming a clump of dark green, globose, cylindrical or club-shaped stems. The individual stems are up to 9 cm tall and up to 7 cm in diameter. 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: October 2023
