It is especially sensitive to overwatering. So careful watering and an open mineral potting soil are a must.

Be careful to encourage slow growth. For this reasons the plant is often grafted on a frost hardy stock. Soil: Use mineral well-permeable substratum. Avoid the use of peat or other humus sources in the potting mixture. It needs perfect drainage to flourish. Repotting: Repotting every years. As it is especially prone to rot under-pot in a smaller container filled with very porous compost.

Use pot with good drainage. Exposition: This plant need full sun Requires maximum sun exposure to reach its full potential, and to achieve success in flowering, and above all it needs a very good ventilation, especially in winter. Strong light encourages an heavy spine production.

Watering: Water sparingly during the growing season and keep totally dry during winter. In the rest period no high atmospheric humidity!! Care must be taken with watering as they tends to become swollen and untidy in growth habit if given too much water and shade. Mature individuals - if the growing conditions are not optimal, easily rot and die. Overhead watering is helpful in controlling mites.

Propagation: Seed or grafting. The seedlings should not be disturbed until they are well rooted, after which they can be planted separately in small pots. Seeds are relatively difficult to germinate only a limited percentage of seeds germinate. Grafting is often used to speed growth rate and to create a back-up for plants in collection.

Mammillaria candida Род Mammillaria объединяет большое количество разнообразных по внешнему строению и экологическим требованиям растений, многие специалисты по-разному рассматривали его объем и классификацию: выделялись разные количества таксонов внутриродового ранга подроды, секции, серии ; какие-то виды то выделялись в самостоятельные роды, то снова включались в род маммиллярия. Род Mammillaria тогда включал таксоны, которые позже отнесли к самостоятельным родам, например: Coryphanta и Ariocarpus. В ХХ веке публиковались классификации следующих авторов: Бриттон и Роуз , которые разделили род на 9 отдельных родов разного объема, в том числе монотипные Mamillopsis , Bartschella , Phellosperma и Solisia ; Berger ; Buxbaum ; Moran Последующие, более современные обработки рода публиковали D.
