April 2018 - Mammillarias

Postby MikeT » Mon Apr 02, 2018 12:57 pm

Surprisingly, it seems that Mammillaria hasn't been chosen previously as a topic, so that's the April competition. It could be spines

or flowers

or a bit of both
Mamm rek lep2.JPG
or anything else Mammillaria.
So what Mamm photos do you have?

None in flower at the moment, so it will have to be old ones as space fillers to get it started.

These photos were taken on April 2nd 2014, so almost exactly 4 years ago, and demonstrate how far advanced they were compared to this year. They are only just showing buds this year and haven't yet been watered, very late in comparison!

Diane, all your four plants are awesome!!
I have never managed such rings of flowers on any of my Mamms...

Mainly cacti, with a preference for Mexican ones, but I'm flexible!
