During the spring and early summer months, Mammillaria stampferi will appear to be more bloom than stem, as the large pink flowers – which feature a rich magenta stripe down the midline of each petal – will nearly obscure the plant itself when viewed from above! During the rest of the year, the bright green base coloration of this variety is offset by furry white areoles from which long, slender spines emerge, with a single copper colored, hook shaped spine in the center of each ‘starburst.’ Texturally, this specimen is simply unmatched, and is a must-have within any succulent and cacti collection.

Like most cacti, Mammillaria stampferi prefers full sun whenever possible. Though this variety is slow to produce clusters of offsets around the base of its 3 to 4-inch wide stem, brighter light will encourage the most prolific crown of blooms each spring – an outcome more than worth the effort of locating a western or southern exposure in which to situate this beauty! Beyond this requirement, the care of Mammillaria stampferi is quite simple. A thorough yet infrequent watering routine, coupled with porous soil and a well-draining pot, will stave off excess moisture and allow this specimen to flourish.

Hardy only to Zone 10, be sure to protect Mammillaria stampferi from freezing temperatures, which could otherwise cause permanent damage to the stems.

    All plants are shipped bare-root with the exception of House Plants and Plant Club Subscription Boxes. House plants and succulents will ship from separate locations and may arrive at different times. Orders ship Monday-Friday each week. Please allow 1-3 business days for your order to be processed. We ship within the USA and its outlying territories ONLY. Read our full policy here.

    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!

    I love to shop here and highly recommend this company. I’ve learned a lot about different succulents and cacti and my garden is beautiful.

    We received the packaged succulents and had a wonderful time going thru, finding what cool plants were hiding inside. We then transplanted them into two pots gave them a spritz of refreshing water and admired their beauty.

    I really like finding plants that aren’t typically found in my local greenhouses. The plants themselves come so loved, well packaged and ready to be placed.
