Highlights

Grafted Mammillaria compressa 'Aurea' Cactus Cuttings: Extra large, unrooted cuttings 7.0" - 9.0" long.

This grafted cactus gives you the best of two different species. The M. compressa 'Aurea' on top has no chlorophyll, which allows its yellow pigments to shine through but means it cannot survive on its own. By grafting it onto strong, green rootstock, it can photosynthesize and flourish. With proper care, it can one day bloom with a ring of red to pink flowers atop its crown.

PLEASE NOTE: These low cost cuttings are NOT guaranteed to root. For tips to help establish roots, see our Full Cuttings Guide.

This cactus variety will not survive a hard frost, but if there is a risk of freezing temperatures it can be brought indoors to grow on a sunny window sill or under a grow light. Cactus need bright sunlight, great drainage, and infrequent water to prevent rot. Pick containers with drainage holes and use well-draining cactus and succulent soil with 70% to 80% mineral grit such as coarse sand, pumice, or perlite. Water deeply and wait for the soil to completely dry out before watering again.
