Mammillaria saboae ssp saboae First description by Glass, Cact. Suc. Mex. 11: 55 (1966)
Preventive treatment necessary.
Damageable by excessive sunlight.
In culture, mineral substrate.
This miniature will form mats of small soft bodied stems. A shallow pot is best, filled with a very open potting mix. Overhead watering is helpful in controlling mites. Initially this species appears easy in cultivation, but the grower should not be surprised if clumps suddenly dry up, especially in the winter season.
