This plant is native to Hidalgo, Queretaro and San Luis Potosi, Mexico. This plant has some taxonomy discrepancies; some consider it a form of M. geminispina, while others consider it a form of the highly variable M. hahniana. Beautiful small globose stem with nice fluffy white wool and white spines, will slowly offset to form a tight cluster. This plant grows best in full to part sun. Water the plant during its growing season, but keep dry during dormancy (winter). The flower is a dark pink/magenta color.
