NOTE: These cacti came to us in a batch of unlabeled, unnamed, assorted cactus. We're not entirely sure what they actually are, so we're just naming them ourselves. 

There's a pretty good chance that this cactus is an "Old Man Hair" or "Old Lady Hair" cactus (Mammillaria Hahniana) whose hairy outer layer helps protect the cactus, and stay cool in the hot deserts they call home. It just looks like the top of a giant Q-tip to us, so that's where our version of its name comes from. 

We're pretty certain that standard cacti-care rules apply to these babies which includes: 

  • Keep the cactus in a place with as much light as possible, bright direct or bright indirect is best. 
  • Water when the cactus' soil is completely dry to the touch, and allow any excess water to drain away completely. Less is more with cactus, and you definitely do not want to over-water them (that's usually what kills a cactus - too much water!)
  • For soil, use a mix which drains very well - a pre-packaged cactus mix will work perfectly, though you can make your own by mixing up 3 parts sand with 1 part perlite to 3 parts regular potting mix.
