General Care for Mammillaria rhodantha “Rainbow Pincushion”
Mammillaria rhodantha “Rainbow Pincushion” adds exceptional interest to indoor and outdoor succulent and cacti gardens. The crown of blooms of “Rainbow Pincushion” last longer than most other cacti, beginning in Spring and ending in the late Fall.
Long sharp spikes cover the entire body of “Rainbow Pincushion,” with the spines near the bottom of the plant changing to a white or gray color. The top of the plant can be covered in a white wool-like substance.
“Rainbow Pincushion” tends to need a bit less water than other succulents. It’s best to use the “soak and dry” method, and allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings. Do not water during Winter months.
Where to Plant
Mammillaria rhodantha is not cold hardy, so if you live in a zone that gets colder than 0° F (-17° C), it’s best to plant this succulent in a container that can be brought indoors. It does well in partial sun to partial shade.
Plant in an area of your garden that gets morning and afternoon sun. If planting indoors, place in a room that gets a lot of sunlight, such as near a southern-facing window (if you’re in the Northern Hemisphere).
