January 2022 - GOTM - Mammillaria (Cochemia)

Post by esp »

Let's see if there is any other comment to this month's POTM!

It's good to see Mammillaria mazatlanensis as POTM, I find it an attractive species.
My own plant at times may produce either straight or hooked centrals.

It recently spent a few years over-wintering in a cold frame, which it survived but didn't seem to enjoy.
I'm treating it better this winter and hoping to persuade it to grow and flowering with more enthusiasm this year.
I don't have any other Cochemia species, but is seems straightforward to grow, so a good starting point for the (sub)genus.

Yes - in the sense that the Society has one every month on https://bcss.org.uk/ it'll be in one of the 'featured' tiles. However, I haven't, and nobody else has, started threads in this section each month. There's nothing to stop anybody doing so if they've anything to say about a genus. I can't say much about this month's topic, Marlothistella, though!

Ah I didn't realise it was tied to the main site. I'm not a member so I just use the forum
