The Rose Pincushion Cactus, also known as Mammillaria zeilmanniana! Originating from Mexico, it got its name from the small bumps on its body that resemble pins sticking out of a pincushion. Interestingly enough, these bumps are clusters of hair-like structures called "spines" that protect it from predators and extreme temperatures.

But don't let this distract you from its true beauty. this unique member of the cactus family captivates with its vibrant flower blooms and distinct Hawaiian vibes. This beauty is most recognized for its ring of pink to red (and sometimes white) flowers that crown it. 

Rose Pincushion Cactus is outstandingly resilient and low-maintenance, making it a great addition to any office or on-the-go plant owners who are busy with work or travel.

Size: this is a larger sized plant, roughly 8" in diameter. Can grow to be 4-12" tall.

Sunlight Requirements: likes full sun exposure, able to withstand direct sun, too!

Watering Frequency: Low. Water roughly once during non-summer seasons and about twice a month during the warm and dry summer season. 

Pet Friendly?: pet friendly, but it has spikes which make it dangerous to be near.
