Mammillaria bocasana cv. Fred description

Mammillaria bocasana cv. Fred, known also as Mammillaria bocasana f. monstruosa, is a perennial cactus cultivar from the Cactaceae family, named for the guy that discovered it. Indeed, this plant is one of the weirdest and the strangest succulents in the world. Furthermore, this cactus forms, weird, lumpy, rubberish, smooth, squishy green and pink globs. Some people find its fascinating monstrous growth very wonderful, however, other people think that it is the ugliest cactus on the planet. Sometimes, the globs may have few fine hairs emanating from the small areoles. This strange Mammillaria is initially cylindrical, but the thick stems grow in different directions over time, creating bizarre and unnatural shapes. Sometimes, some parts of the plant return to their original Mammillaria bocasana form, while others retain their atypical reef appearance. Also, whitish flowers are rarely produced.
