Mammillaria plumosa - Feather Cactus

$ 14.00 $ 11.20

Mammillaria plumosa is hands down one of our favorite cacti. Upon seeing it, you'll immediately understand why it's nicknamed the "Feather Cactus" -- its white "feathers" arch into soft, flower-like plumes that cover the sharper spines, both making the plant a wonder to behold and also protecting it from sun and heat. The little yellow flowers that can emerge seasonally are an extra bonus. A must for any arid plant collection.


• Light: Bright diffused to direct light
• Water: Drought tolerant. Let soil completely dry between waterings
• Considerations: Use a well-draining cactus/succulent soil, and select a planter with drainage


You'll get a healthy Mammillaria plumosa that meets our rigorous quality standards in a 4" nursery pot. No two plants are alike, and yours will have its own unique shape, size and personality; expect this natural variation from the photos.

Our plants include detailed care instructions as well as our Houseplant Best Practices guide, with information on how to repot, seasonal care and more!

We include shipping box warmers at no charge as needed. Got questions? Check out our FAQ!
