Re: Mammillaria luethyi

Thanks all, Ross M - I obtained the grafted one last year from Tony Iron’s Cacti Ebay page. There was a good number he was selling for £12 each. Might be worth getting in touch via his website as he may have some more tucked away somewhere. The other plant I have is on its own roots and was bought f...

Re: Mammillaria luethyi

Beautiful, lovely looking plants. I put a tissue cuff around/underneath the plant so I can collect the dropped seed, get seeed but no germination but its good to have a challenge. Thanks Tina, I also tried similar with the tissue idea and it did work for the ones that fell out. The ones that shot o...

Re: Mammillaria luethyi

Thanks Diane :). I did find some seed when I first got the plant but as you say I had zero success getting them to germinate. I did some more careful rooting around in these and my two M.theresae who also have concealed seed pods and managed to extract a few from both theresae’s. I’m getting good ge...

Re: Mammillaria luethyi

My favourite plant in bloom today, along with its grafted friend so I have had the paintbrush out to see if I’m able to get them to set seed. Most likely both are clones from the same plant but fingers crossed. :) 2BD02DD4-60ED-4E72-B20E-6E1A1E035152.jpeg B5AE00ED-9DA5-4BC3-8400-A4024255C1A1.jpeg 6A...

South of Yecora is the location of the original habitat material for your plant, no reason from the label to think it's anything other than typical for the (sub)species :

Mammillaria haudeana

I’ve found this plant to grow very quickly for me, almost tripling in size in under two years. This one is on its own roots and so far I’ve not found it particularly hard to care for considering what I’ve read about it being hard to keep alive (hopefully I’ve not jinxed myself now :D). Quite a few e...
