Like other cacti, Mammillaria elongate requires a well-drained, loose, sandy potting mix which you can get from your local plant store. or you can prepare your own by adding 30% soil or clay, 30% sand, 20 % cocopeat, and 20 % of something like pumice or perlite or coarse sand, etc.
Propagating this plant is super easy. If you see babies growing on the sides simply twist and turn to pull them out but make sure the baby stems are taller than 1 inch to ensure a higher success rate now let them rest for 2 to 7 days in a shaded place to let the callus develop. And Once callus is observed you may plant them in a Pot having a well-drained potting mix and done! It will grow roots in a month or two if provided conditions are in favor.
To get the best result you may add cactus compost in the container get it from our website link in the description of the course you can prepare your own cacti compost but I’m not going to dive into the process of making cacti compost for now as it’s a topic for another video.
