Availability: In stock
Mammillaria gracilis fragilis, commonly known as Thimble Cactus or Fragile Cactus, is a petite and charming cactus species belonging to the Mammillaria genus in the Cactaceae family. This delightful cactus is known for its small, globular shape, which is covered in tiny white spines.
Globular Shape: Thimble Cactus is a diminutive cactus that typically grows in a solitary, globular form. Individual plants are usually only a few inches tall and wide.
Spines: The cactus is densely covered in tiny, hair-like spines that are usually white but can take on a slightly yellowish or pale tan coloration.
Flowers: In spring or early summer, Thimble Cactus may produce small, dainty flowers that can range in color from white to pale yellow or pink. These flowers are typically no more than half an inch in diameter.
Light: Provide Thimble Cactus with plenty of bright, indirect sunlight. It can also tolerate some direct sunlight but should be protected from intense sun exposure during the hottest part of the day.
Watering: Allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings. Thimble Cactus is drought-tolerant and is sensitive to overwatering.
Temperature: It prefers warm temperatures and should be protected from freezing conditions. However, it can tolerate cooler temperatures if kept dry.
Soil: Use a well-draining cactus or succulent mix to ensure proper drainage.
Propagation: Thimble Cactus can be propagated through offsets or by carefully removing and replanting detached stems.
