Product Description

Mammillaria calleana, commonly known as Calle's Pincushion Cactus, is a delightful and distinctive species of cactus native to Mexico. This cactus is appreciated for its unique appearance and notable features.

Mammillaria calleana typically forms small, solitary or clumping clusters of cylindrical to slightly globular stems. What sets it apart are the dense covering of small, hair-like spines that give it a soft and woolly texture. These spines are usually white or pale yellow, creating a charming contrast against the cactus's greenish to bluish-green body.

During the spring and early summer, Calle's Pincushion Cactus produces small, dainty flowers that can vary in color from pale pink to lavender or even white. These delicate blossoms add to the cactus's appeal and can attract pollinators.

Caring for Mammillaria calleana is relatively straightforward. It thrives in well-draining soil, bright sunlight, and prefers to be watered sparingly, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings. This cactus is well-suited for both indoor and outdoor cultivation and can be an enchanting addition to rock gardens, succulent arrangements, or desert-themed landscapes.

Mammillaria calleana's captivating appearance and ease of care make it a favored choice among cactus enthusiasts and collectors, showcasing the diverse and beautiful world of cacti found in its native regions of Mexico.
