Lady Finger Cactus, aka Mammillaria elongata, also known as Golden Stars, or Gold Lace Cactus, gets its name from its elongated stems and golden yellow or brown spines. Although they are not poisonous, watch out for their sharp spines! Cacti are a great starter plant or gift as they need very little water and will thrive in full sun. They would much rather be too dry than too wet (think of desert conditions when taking care of them).

The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.

We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.

Pro tips

As with all succulents, overwatering is sure to be fatal, so err on the side of too dry rather than too wet, never letting it sit in water. If the side of the plant facing the sun starts to turn yellow or brown, move the plant to a spot where it will receive less direct sunlight than it was receiving.

Care Guide

How to take care of Lady Finger Cactus

They enjoy some direct sun, but they'll also do well in bright, indirect light. It is best to place this plant somewhere where it will receive some nice morning sun, or a couple hours of afternoon sun, and then indirect light the rest of the day.

They will do best in bright light. A nice bright place inside your home would be on the window sill or a stool that is right next to a window, either with or without blinds, depending on if the plant can handle sun. Remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.

They like the soil to be completely dry before the next watering. That usually takes about 4 weeks in an average home environment. It will vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions, but for them, it's always safer to underwater or water when you see signs of lack of water (i.e. wrinkly or soft leaves). Water a little more often in the warmer months.

Their humidity requirement is low, so do not mist them or put them in an enclosed terrarium.

This plant is moderately toxic and can cause some adverse reactions when ingested so it is best to not let your pets eat it, which we advise for all plants in general. The severity of the reaction will depend on how much of the plant is ingested but, if you know your pet typically does not eat your plants, this plant will be suitable for your home.
