I appreciate the initiative and I would like to buy some plants.

Can you drive me in choosing the top ten must have plants for my little collection?

Keep in mind my USDA 8 and non professional grenhouse for the cold winter.

Every advice is well accepted.
Thank you.

with your permission i replay in italian (alessandra is from vicenza)...
ho acquistato ad aprile una settantina di piante dall'uk mammillaria reference collection e sono arrivate perfettamente conservate dopo sette giorni dalla spedizione.
ti consiglio quel periodo per l'acquisto, onde evitare danni che potrebbero subire dal gelo ed in generale dalle bassissime temperature che dovrebbero sopportare in giro per mezzeuropa.
in quel periodo poi potresti senza problemi iniziare le annaffiature.
non ho perso nessuna pianta nel corso dell'anno e la loro crescita č risultata costante e armonica.
comunque a disposizione.
maurizio

Ciao "mudnčs" :-)
grazie per le informazioni preziose. Rinvio l'acquisto, allora.
Chiedevo quali tipi di mammillaria, tra quelli elencati, non dovrebbero mai mancare in una bella collezione. Amo tutte le mammillarie.


Hello "mudnčs" :-)
thanks you for precious information. Than, I postpone the acquisition.
I ask which Mammillarias, among the one pound list, would never miss in the ideal collection.
I like all Mammi.

I also have had many young plants from "One Pound...", and have bene very happy with them.

If you wanted just 10 species.......oh this is difficult...!!

I would choose a plant from each of the main groups (as per Hunt), because then you would have a good representation, so:

1. Mammillaria longimamma or Mammillaria surculosa - subgenus Dolicothele
2. Mammillaria sheldonii or Mammillaria grahamii - for the Ancistracanthae
3. Mammillaria haudeana or Mammillaria longiflora - for the Longiflorae
4 & 5. Mammillaria bombycina and Mammillaria bocasana - for the Stylothelae
6. Mammillaria carmenae for the Lasiacanthae
7. Mammillaria decipiens camptotricha for the Decipientes
8. Mammillaria rhodantha for the Heterochlorae
9. Mammillaria spinosissima for the Polyacanthae
10. Mammillaria haageana for the Supertextae
11. Mammillaria geminispina for the Leucocephalae
12 & 13. Mammillaria heyderi and Mammillaria magnimamma for the Mammillaria
14. Mammillaria karwinskiana or Mammillaria mystax for the Polyedrae

Sorry, I didn't stop at 10!! There are more........and once you get bitten by the bug, hundreds!

Obviously this is my personal choice. Other people might have other favourites. It would be interesting to know.

All of these should be OK if you can keep a minimum temperature of 5C. That is my winter minimum and they grow fine if dry by early October and start watering in March - for the UK at least.

Hi Chris43,
Thank you that's kind of list is what I was expecting.
It's also very interesting the "one plant per specie" differentiation.
I will buy Hunt book.
