Mammillaria Compressa

Globular cactus, solitary at first, later forming massive clumps up to 1 metre wide

It is a  rapid growing  species that will form large clumps. Needs lots of space to grow.  Water regularly in summer, but do not overwater. If pot grown make sure pot has good drainage and a very porous potting media.  Keep dry in winter. Feed with a high potassium fertilizer  in Summer. It is quite frost resistant if kept dry, hardy as low as -5° C (some reports give it hardy to -12°C).

Plant outside in full sun or afternoon shade, if planted inside, this cactus needs bright light, and some direct sun.
