Mamillaria tetrancistra

These little cacti are adorable. They’ve got short white spines that make them look almost fuzzy with larger black spines in the middle of each areole. They can exist as a single stem or in groups of about 3-10 stems. Their flowers are pink and their fruits are bright red (and almost look like a chile).
