Mammillaria elongata 'Pink Nymph'

Size

Bright pink blooms sporting an ombre affect across the length of their petals lend this exceptional variety its name! The slightly tapered, conical stems of Mammillaria elongata ‘Pink Nymph’ readily produce offsets around their base, which can be left in place to form a thick mass of stems, or removed with a clean knife and repotted to grow on into a ‘new’ specimen! Covered in tubercles along the length of its stems, ‘Pink Nymph’ displays starbursts of creamy beige spines, creating a coating of texture sure to add a touch of whimsy to any collection, from the novice to the experienced succulent grower!

When provided with the right growing conditions, ‘Pink Nymph’ can reach up to several inches tall and establish a clump several inches wide. Bright to direct sunlight is key to this level of growth, so be sure to place this specimen in a west or south-facing windowsill for the greatest success. Furthermore, it is important to protect the roots of ‘Pink Nymph’ from excess moisture – so plan to utilize a porous soil mix within a well-draining pot, ensure ample airflow around the leaves and soil surface, and adhere to a thorough yet infrequent watering routine.

During the winter months, take extra steps to shield ‘Pink Nymph’ from frosty temperatures, which could otherwise cause permanent damage to the stems.
