Ladyfinger Cactus - Mammillaria elongata

Regular price $22.00

This attractive, low maintenance succulent is perfect for beginners. It is named for its long stems, resembling fingers, that spread as it grows. We’ve potted this one with our special cactus soil in a 4” ceramic honeycomb pot with drainage hole.

LIGHT Your Ladyfinger cactus needs as much bright light as you can give it—a sunny windowsill is perfect. Rotate it frequently to prevent it leaning to one side as it reaches towards the light.

WATER Water deeply then allow to dry thoroughly before watering again. Water slowly at the base ( of the plant (avoid wetting the plant) until water comes out the drainage hole. Watering frequency will depend on time of year and amount of light received, but a good starting point is every 2-4 weeks in the warmer Spring and Summer months, and every 4-6 weeks from late Fall through Winter.

SIZE Approximately 7”H X 4”W (Pot Size: 4"D)
