Re: Help with a project

Thank you Mike and Acid John for your comments. Yes, in my 'short' introduction to the survey I only mention the risk the horticultural trade is to cacti in the wild; a very significant risk and one of the main focuses for my dissertation. If you are interested in the report I refer to in the introd...

Re: Mammillaria id

Thank you for the suggestions so far. The flower colour is very variable across the seedlings. This photo was taken this evening and I did have to use the flash. SAM_3015.JPG The seedlings are about 3 yrs old and are showing no signs of clustering, I seem to remember the giselae I've grown from seed...

Mammillaria id

The seeds were purchased as Mammillaria lasiacantha, we had good germination however as they've grown I've become more doubtful that they are lasiacantha due to the spination. Does anyone have any thoughts to what they may be?

Re: Sussex Zone Show - This Weekend

A big thank you to Graham and everyone involved in organising today's show. A very enjoyable day and I was pleased with my first time showing, first and second in the novice classes (so a piece of silver to polish for the next year!) and third in the Aloe class.

Looking forward to next year!

Re: Cacti for my grandson's Year 1 class

My brownies loved the cactus evening I did for them a couple of weeks ago. I think many would have quite happily taken home the plants I took to show them! They all take home a pot of Astropyhtum seeds which they had sowed. The following week two of newest brownies that are only just 7 rushed in to ...

I grew this Mammillaria from seed in about 2006 and during one of our house moves the orginal label was lost.
