It is a temperamental type of plant, as it is more prone to rot than most Mammillaria. So it makes it a challenge to grow. Ideal for shallow pots. Grown in a 70 mm size pot.

Mammillaria Aurihamata is a softish-bodied plant and has golden hoof spines and white spines. Small yellowish-white flowers in color also offset freely. The mounds of heads make an impressive mound of plants. The cactus is suited for sunny-brightly exposure but can tolerate light shade. Mammillaria Aurihamata needs a well-drained soil mix with small gravel added to ensure drainage. Water thoroughly during the growing season when soil is dry to the touch.

Also known as Mammillaria schelhasii var. aurihamata, Neomammillaria aurihamata


Watch your Mammillaria Aurihamata for the first couple of months to check if they are happy where they are.

Mammillaria Aurihamata requires more sunlight if it looks like growing out of shape. Burning is a common fact when having new plants. Best to gradually give them more sunlight as the weeks go by. Instead of placing it in straight sunlight.

Allow them to sit for a week before giving them a good drink. Depending on the season. Make sure they dry out completely before watering again. Don’t forget to give them a spray with soapy water to keep the bugs off them. And provide very good ventilation.
