Mammillaria elongata cristata - comb shape
With a comb shape, the growth point of a plant changes and becomes a growth line. So while a normal plant tends towards the sky with its tip, a comb shape has a whole line of tips grown together. This gives these plants a very special look.
This strain forms such small coils that we call this cactus "Little Brain" .
