This is the rare monstrose form of Mammillaria longimamma. Instead of the normal finger-like protrusions from its stem, these specimens exhibit a compact, pineapple-like stem form.

Care Guide

Like most Mammillaria, this is a desert species and prefers full morning 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.
