  • Mammillaria elongata cristata, commonly known as "Crested Ladyfinger Cactus," is a unique and visually appealing cultivar of Mammillaria elongata. Instead of the typical cylindrical stems of the non-crested form, the stems of Mammillaria elongata cristata are flattened and contorted, creating a fascinating and ornamental appearance. 
    In spring, funnel-shaped flowers typically appear only on the normal growing stems. The flowers vary from whitish to pale yellow or pinkish and may sometimes be flushed pink or have a darker midstripe.
  • Water Needs: Low; allow the soil to dry out between waterings. Avoid overwatering to prevent root rot.
  • Light Requirement: Prefers bright, indirect sunlight. Can tolerate some direct sunlight.
  • Maintenance: Low; minimal pruning required. Trim to maintain the desired shape and remove any dead or damaged growth.
  • Common Names: Brain cactus, Ladyfinger Cactus or Golden Stars.
  • Family: Cactaceae.
  • Origin: Native to Mexico.
  • Cold Tolerance: Not frost-resistant; protect from freezing temperatures.
