The plants need a bright exposure, part shade in summer. The Mammillaria Crassior 100 mm should be watered regularly in Summer allowing too dry before watering again. Kept the plant drier in Winter. They grow best in well-drained soil also to keep the roots cool in summer.

Australian Desert Blooms Nursery is producing many more cactus and cacti for you to buy online. If anytime this cactus is out of stock know for sure that it will be back as quickly as possible. As we produce all our own stock here in Ipswich near Brisbane.


Watch your Mammillaria Crassior 100 mm for the first couple of months to check if they are happy where they are.

The Mammillaria 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.
