Where it grows
This cactus is indigenous to Mexico.
Mammillaria elegans is a dwarf species of cactus with a mix of white and black thorns. It rarely branches into multiple stems. Produces pink flowers in late winter.
Like most Mammillaria, this is a desert species and prefers full sun during the growing season of summer. It needs a gritty soil mix with very little organic components to mimic the soil in its natural habitat. Water it well during spring and summer, but keep it totally dry in winter.
