Lady Fingers Cactus Mammillaria Elongata

14 reviews
Size
  • Known as the ladyfinger cactus, Mammillaria elongata forms clusters of cylindrical stems with yellow-brown spines, giving plants an overall golden brown appearance.

    Pink-yellow flowers may appear in spring.

    Easy to grow, it’s a great cactus for beginners. Its offshoots may be used to propagate new plants. For best results grow Mammillaria elongata in cactus compost in containers in full sun. Water from mid-spring to summer only, and feed once a month with a special cactus fertiliser.

    Mammillaria elongata is best grown as a houseplant but containers may be moved to a sunny, sheltered patio in midsummer.

    All of the plants will be shipped bare root.
  • Partial sun, partial shade.

    Porous, well-drained.

    This cactus prefers cooler temperatures, so avoid placing it close to any heat sources. But also protect the plant from frost and freezing temperatures.

    Try not to overwater the plant, but you can mist its leaves every other day to maintain its preferred level of humidity (50-60%).

    Generally non-toxic to humans and animals

  • Your plant will be meticulously bubble wrapped and shipped in a sturdy box. Most of the plants will be shipped bare-root to ensure their safety. If you want to receive the plastic pot & soil, please leave a note in your order. When opening your package, some soil may be loose in the box. Plant orders are shipped within 3-5 days depending on the availability of the plant. We ship our plants Monday through Friday, all twelve months of the year!

    - 100% biodegradable packing peanuts made from natural and non-toxic sources.
    - Bubblewrap to ensure the quality and safety of the plants.

    Though it is not yet possible to completely eliminate plastic from our packing process, we take responsibility for our plastic emissions by partnering with CleanHub. For every 1lb plastic we use, 1lb of plastic from nature will be collected and recycled before it can end up in our oceans.

    Here is our blog about the shipping process and packaging: https://succulentsbox.com/pages/shipping-return-policy

    *** The size options are represtentative of pots that the plants come in. Sometimes customer may receive multiple plants instead of a large one to make up size.

    *** All of our packages are sterilized before leaving the door.
  • We only ship out beautiful, healthy plants! Please track your package and open it immediately upon arrival. If you receive your package and are not satisfied, please message us immediately. Fragile plants such as bearpaw, baby toe, etc. may break or loose a few of their leaves during transport. Please contact us for replacements if your plants are severely damaged. We'll try our best to accommodate you. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year.
  • Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended. Bright, filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Never let your succulents sit in water. Do NOT water on the leaves. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour off any excess water after a few minutes. The hotter it is outside, the faster your soil will dry out, so you’ll need to water more often if you live in a hot area. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended periods; protect from frost to prevent scarring.

A little "oddly" shaped

We were surprised when we opened the box of the odd shape we received. It surely made us chuckle. But overall, great packaging and quick shipping. Thank you!!

IMPRESSIVE

I was thrilled to open the box and find such a big beautiful cactus, Had to use oven mitts to settle it in its new home, but he seems so happy there and shall I say "well adjusted". Thank you Succulents Box.
