Super weird to look where the fruit used to be. I wonder, is the cactus pink on the inside??? #newplants #newplant #closeup #outdoors #decking #deckgarden #deckgardening #deck #outdoorgarden #mammillaria #hahniana #cacti #cactus #oldladycactus #cactigarden #seedpods #seedpod #deck #deckgarden #deckgardening

Harvested the fruit and am going to give them a day or two to dry out before sowing them 😍 #newplants #newplant #closeup #outdoors #decking #deckgarden #deckgardening #deck #outdoorgarden #mammillaria #hahniana #cacti #cactus #oldladycactus #cactigarden #seedpods #seedpod #deck #deckgarden #deckgardening

Found another seed pod that popped up!!!! I didn't realize it would continue to give off seed pods without flowers??? Or maybe it did flower in those spots and they just fell off?! #newplants #newplant #closeup #outdoors #decking #deckgarden #deckgardening #deck #outdoorgarden #mammillaria #hahniana #cacti #cactus #oldladycactus #cactigarden #seedpod

Decided to move old lady into the groot in with my baby cacti. Figured it would be best if they were looked after by an elder 😜😜 #newplants #newplant #closeup #outdoors #decking #deckgarden #deckgardening #deck #outdoorgarden #mammillaria #hahniana #cacti #cactus #oldladycactus #cactigarden

Decided to go ahead and harvest the seeds as per my research seems to state. Either way we'll see 🥰🌱🥰 #newplants #newplant #closeup #outdoors #decking #deckgarden #deckgardening #deck #outdoorgarden #mammillaria #unknown #cacti #cactus #seeds #seedpods #seedpod

If the fruits are easy to loose from the cactus, the seeds inside should be viable by then. Cut vertically down the middle to obtain them, and plant in well draining soil. Don't bury them too deeply, just lay them on top and cover them with a dusting of extra soil. Spray them regularly with water to keep the soil moist, not wet. They should germinate anywhere from 5 days to a few weeks later, so patience is key. Also, the fruits are edible. Not very good on their own, but there are recipes.

FINALLY!!!! AHHHHH I've been wanting a Mammillaria for so long! If it wasn't for those tiny little seedpods I doubt I would have saw this little gem! #newplants #newplant #closeup #outdoors #decking #deckgarden #deckgardening #deck #outdoorgarden #mammillaria #unknown #cacti #cactus
