Powderpuff Cactus Clusters, Mammillaria Bocasana Multilanata - US Shipping Included


Commonly known as the Powderpuff Cactus and Fishooks Cactus, this cultivar of Mammillaria bocasana is a favorite among succulent enthusiasts due to it being easy to grow and a plant that flowers reliably.

Multiple sides of the cactus clusters being offered are shown in the listing photographs growing in their 5 inch pots and are identifiable by their associated letters. All are shown growing in their

Cluster "A": Has 14 stems, with the largest measuring 1-1/4 inches in diameter. The entire cluster is 3-3/4 x 3-1/2 inches.

Cluster "B": Contains 17 stems up to 1 inch in diameter. The cluster stands 2-3/4 inches tall and is approximately 3-1/2 x 3-1/2 inches.

Cluster "C": The largest of the 9 stems is 2 inches in diameter. The cluster measures 4 x 3-3/4 inches and is 2-3/4 inches tall at the highest point.

All of these will ship with very little soil and the pots will not be included. Charges to ship to any address within the United Sates are included, with the exceptions noted at the end of the description.

These plants can grow rapidly grow to form large mounds and produce a multitude of white to pink flowers during late spring and early summer. They are covered in white "hair" and have darker hook shaped spines that extend above their wooly covering. These spines were used as fish hooks by the indigenous peoples of Mexico in areas where this is a native plant.

Grow these clusters in soil that has good drainage (standard cactus soil amended with additional perlite works well). Allow the soil to fully dry and remain that way for several days before watering during warmer months. Water only once every 6 weeks for the balance of the year. Place these in an area that receives direct morning sunlight and is partially shaded from afternoon sun. These plants may survive temperatures as low as 25 degrees Fahrenheit, but protecting them from anything below 40 degrees is the best practice.

PLEASE NOTE: We cannot ship these plants to destinations within the states of California, Hawaii, Alaska or to the US island territories.
