Mammillaria elongata

This is Mammillaria elongata, one of the easiest of cacti to grow and probably the most common species of Mammillaria. But just because it's readily available and easy to grow doesn't mean it should be ignored. Every collection should have this plant. Perhaps every collection does! The challenge should be to grow it well and to display it at its best. We have a couple of very nice clumps and they are quite striking.
