Mammillaria Plumosa 'Feather Cactus'

Size
  • Mammillaria plumosa is original from Nuevo Leon, Mexico.The plant is commonly referred to as Feather Cactus because of its soft and unique appearance. It’s completely covered in white, downy spines. 


    Flowers are creamy-white, greenish-yellow, or dull pink and appear in late summer. These blossoms are very strongly and sweetly scented

     All of the plants will be shipped bare root.
  • The desert Mammillaria plumosa feather cactus needs a great deal of bright, direct light. If you’re keeping your cactus as a houseplant, place it in a southern or western facing window.

    Use a sharp well draining soil, and allow all excess water to run off every time you water.

    As with most cacti, excessive watering will cause your feather cactus to rot.

    These cacti are not toxic but remember they are also not soft and cuddly. Keep your Mammillaria out of the reach of kids and pets to avoid uncomfortable injuries.


  • USDA hardiness zones 9a to 11b
  • Your plant will be meticulously bubblewrapped and shipped in a sturdy box. Most of the plants will be shipped bare-root to ensure their safety.

We do not ship outside of the continental United States.

    *** 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.

Pleasantly Surprised

I was hesitant to buy plants online and have them shipped. The local store didn’t not have a great assortment and the ones I did get aren’t doing so well. The shipment I received was packed very well and all the plants I have gotten are thriving.
