  • Mammillaria Elongata is a hardy cactus and can be grown outdoors in sun or partial shade. It is best to protect it from strong afternoon sun during heatwaves.

  • Elongata is drought hardy and will survive without water for long periods but will grow better when watered regularly. 
  • Can be grown indoors in a sunny spot, but will grow slower and may not bloom.
