Brain Cactus

Regular price

Cactus | direct sun

Comes in 8cm pot, approx 18cm tall

Scientific name: mammillaria 

This spooky, scary cactus has a distinctive shape which looks like human brains. It’s a really unique and easy to look after plant to add to your cacti/succulent collection. 

This funky little plant has distinctive wavy ribbing which resembles the folds of a brain. They are small and globular in their shape, pretty slow growing, but can produce pretty flowers during spring and summer months if given enough direct light.

The Brain Cactus thrives in full, direct sunlight. With that being said, be mindful of hot summer sunshine, as prolonged exposure could scorch your cactus. Place near your brightest window, a west-facing one is ideal.

This plant is non-toxic to cats and dogs, just watch out for the sharp spines!
