Description: Mammillaria is one of the largest genera of the Cactaceae family, which contains about 200 species. Among them there are very unpretentious species that can be found in almost any cactus grower, and there are very demanding and complex, and therefore rare cacti.

Mammillaria are spherical or short-cylindrical cacti. The stem is covered with papillae (overgrown bases of leaves), at the top of the papilla there is an areola (modified axillary bud) with a bunch of hairs and spines. Flowers and lateral shoots ("babies") appear in the papillae. The flowers are mostly small, located in the form of a wreath at the top of the stem. Fruits are berry-like, ripen in the 2nd year.

The structural features of mammillaria make them easy to distinguish from other members of the cactus family. One of these features is the presence of numerous papillae on the stem of mammillaria, and not just tubercles. Thorns grow from the top of these papillae. Flowers emerge from the sinuses between the papillae. Although I must say that the papillae may be the only similarity between different types of mammillaria. Some species form large cushions. Many species are decorative; they are cultivated in greenhouses and rooms.

Mammillaria Gracilis is a short, profusely branched cactus at the base with cylindrical, dark green stems. The stems have large, high tubercles. At the tops of the tubercles are areoles bearing strong, straight, light, sharp radial spines 3 to 8 mm long. In the warm season, plants form delicate creamy, funnel-shaped flowers on the tops of the stems.

Care: In winter, there is a dormant period at a temperature of 7-10 ° C when kept dry. For pubescent mammillaria, the winter minimum is 15 ° C, but higher temperatures in winter are not desirable. In summer, mammillaria especially need fresh air, so at this time it is better to keep them on the balcony or take them out into the garden. Mammillaria love a lot of light, almost all of them not only tolerate direct sunlight, but also require it. Especially a lot of light is needed for pubescent mammillaria.

In winter, watering is very rare during cold wintering (once a month there is enough water to just moisten the top layer of the earth). Some mammillaria are not watered at all in winter. With the onset of spring, watering is increased and from May to June water is moderately or abundantly, depending on how hot the summer is, but from August watering begins to be reduced, and by October watering is already limited. Fertilizing watering in spring and summer. They respond well to spraying from a very fine spray bottle in summer, when the sun is still or no longer shining on the plant. Although it is believed that mammillaria, like all cacti, are resistant to dry air.

Preferred soil: 1 part turf, 1 part leaf, 1 part peat land, 1 part sand and brick chips. For adult cacti and old ones, the sod soil is 2 parts.Since most mammillaria form many babies, which usually root next to the mother plant, the pot for them should be wide, but not deep. Young plants are transplanted annually, old in a year.
