Mammillaria Bocasana is clustery cactus covered with bundles of silky white hairs, each of which surrounds a yellow-red hooked spine. Funnel-form flower is creamy white to pinkish in color. The fruit is cylindrical, rosy-pink to red in color and up to 2.5 cm long.
A rapidly growing species, M.Bocasana grows well under moderate tropical conditions. It requires regular watering during the summer season with minimal or no water in the winters. Outside full sun or afternoon shade is best for a healthy growth and should be kept in a bright spot, if inside. It easily flowers under proper conditions.
It is an excellent plant for garden rockery settings, desert type landscapes, patios and botanical gardens
For watering cacti, the golden rule is to make sure the soil is completely dry before watering! This will stop the roots from rotting. It is advised to always use a pot with a drainage hole so that excess water can get drained out. If kept in a sunny area, you will need to water it once every week. If it is in a semi shaded or filtered light area, you might need to water it once in 2 weeks.
Cacti like soil that is well aerated and fast draining. You can fertilise the cactus in the summer months when it is in its growing season. During the winters it is best to cut back on any fertiliser and let the plant rest.
