Re: Another mammillaria (???) for ID

I think that's a Mammillaria mazatlanensis. Could be a M. sheldonii, but I think the former. There are form that are quite similar.

Re: Mammillaria gigantia which keeps toppling over

I agree, M. gigantea should not be that shape. If you can post a photo that would help a lot, but if not, could you tell us a bit more about how it looks, spines, flowers... It is quite variable, and has had several names in the past, reflecting this, and two example of what the plant should be like...

Re: David Hunt

This is very sad news. As Terry has said, David's first love among cactus plants was the genus Mammillaria. He took this large genus and worked unceasingly to create a structure and understanding that has lasted for decades. I only met David on a relatively few occasions, though in more recent years...

Re: ID please

I suspect that it is one of the many forms of Mammillaria albilanata, probably ssp. oaxacana, but I can't see the areole formation (spines etc) clearly enough to be certain. Could you do a close up of a few areoles?

Re: All systems go!

Excellent as ever, Diane. I do find luethyi difficult, but not schwarzii. Maybe it thrives on neglect!! I bought a couple of M. luethyi seedling on own roots last autumn, and at least they have survived the winter, so I may hope.

Re: Mammillaria id request Solved

looks likely, do you think its not? Now merged into M. lasiacantha according to the botanists. I have several under the magallani name, and their spines appear less uniform in distribution which gives the plant a less smooth appearance than some other M. lasiacantha forms.

Re: Speaking of Mammillarias

both chica and viescensis are now merged into gasseriana. There may be differences between them for specific plants, just normal variation of a naturally variable species.

Re: Speaking of Mammillarias

Excellent!! I love the Lasiacantha plants in Spring, and I do think the flower colour can vary among plants grown from the same seed batch, just naturally variant. I too have M. goldii in flower now, as well as M. deherdtiana and M. teoexicansis of those shown, and lots of others as well. One of my ...

Re: I.D. needed, please. Solved

I think it might be M.painteri monstruosa rather than M. decipiens.
