Named Mammillaria gracilis fragilis because of the fragile nature of the babies/pups that grow from the sides of the parents, some will likely break off in transit, even though we will wrap them well.

 

This is not a problem. You can plant the pup base down about one third of their depths next to the parents or in new pots.
They root easily. Just keep them moist until they get new roots.

The parent plant/s will stay rooted in the soil of the pots we send them in.

We offer refund or replacements at your discretion if you are not happy :- )
