Introducing the captivating Mammillaria magnimamma, a gem from the arid landscapes of Mexico. This succulent stands out with its cylindrical shape and a surface covered in large, pronounced tubercles, giving it a unique texture that's both intriguing and visually appealing. The name 'magnimamma' derives from these oversized tubercles, which are among the largest in the Mammillaria family, adding to the plant's distinctive charm.

The Mammillaria magnimamma doesn't just rely on its interesting form to catch the eye; it also produces rings of delightful, cream-colored flowers that crown its top, creating a striking contrast against its green to blue-green body. These blooms typically appear in spring, adding a splash of brightness and beauty to any collection. Mature plants might even surprise with a circle of reddish-purple fruits, providing additional color and interest.

Reaching up to 10 inches in height and spreading about the same in width, this succulent is perfectly suited for rock gardens, desert landscapes, or as a standout specimen in a succulent collection. It's a relatively low-maintenance plant, requiring minimal water and thriving in well-draining soil, making it an excellent choice for both beginners and experienced gardeners alike. The Mammillaria magnimamma's robust nature and eye-catching appearance make it a must-have for anyone looking to add a touch of desert beauty to their indoor or outdoor spaces.


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!
