$ 9.00
Size: 4"

Introducing the Mammillaria fraileana, a captivating succulent hailing from the rugged landscapes of Mexico. This delightful plant is a marvel of nature, showcasing a cylindrical form densely packed with spiral arrangements of white spines. The spines, while appearing fierce, are soft to the touch and provide a striking contrast against the deep green of the succulent's skin. Standing at a modest 4 to 6 inches in height, the Mammillaria fraileana makes a perfect addition to any succulent collection or as a standalone statement piece.

During the spring months, the Mammillaria fraileana surprises and delights with a crown of pink or pale yellow flowers that emerge from the top of the plant, adding a splash of color to its already fascinating form. These blooms not only add to the plant's charm but also attract pollinators, contributing to the health of your garden ecosystem. The flowers give way to small, red fruits that add an extra layer of interest to this unique succulent.

Whether nestled in a rock garden, perched on a sunny windowsill, or adding life to a mixed succulent arrangement, the Mammillaria fraileana is sure to captivate. Its ease of care, coupled with its exotic appearance, makes it an ideal choice for both seasoned succulent enthusiasts and novices alike. With its slow-growing nature and potential to produce offsets, this succulent offers the rewarding experience of watching your collection gradually expand. Embrace the beauty and simplicity of the Mammillaria fraileana and let it bring a touch of the Mexican wilderness into your home.


Plant sizing is based on the diameter of the nursery pot (2", 2.5", 3", 4" etc), not the plant itself. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grow in depending on availability or time of year. While we do our best to ship plants as similar to those pictured as possible, please keep in mind that all plants are unique from one to the next, and display color, shape, and growth variation based on current environment, time of year, and other contributing factors. Please note that we ship our plants as dry as possible in the fall and winter months to prevent root rot or freezing. They will plump back up after planting!
