There has never been a better to purchase one of these beautiful flowering cactus species. Our plants are either flowering or just starting to put out flower buds. With proper care, your cactus should flower throughout the holiday season !
This carmenae variety of mammolaria has similarities to the traditional albiflora, and also produces delicate white flowers when grown in proper conditions. The spines provide greater coverage of the cactus and these seem to like a little more light and heat than the traditional albifloras.
This is another great, small and compact, flowering cactus that is great for any plant collector.
