Mammillaria Variaculeata 100mm is a clumping-forming cactus at maturity, with short straight spines. The body shape will vary from globose to short cylindrical, curving pipe-shaped, and also green body. It is suited for sunny-brightly exposure but can tolerate light shade. Mammillaria Variaculeata 100mm 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.


Australian Desert Blooms Nursery is producing many more cacti, cactus, and succulents 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 Variaculeata 100mm for the first couple of months to check if they are happy where they are.

Mammillaria Variaculeata 100mm 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.
