This second plant is M.schiedeana giselae ML ( Michel Lacoste ) 677 and was grown from seed that came from Lacoste via the Doug Rowland 2006 seedlist. Sown 29-5-06, germinated 6-6-06.



Althought the two collections are from the same location, Cerro Bufa de Diente, San Carlos, Tamps, the plants and slightly different.
The H.O.485 plants all have these large fat bodies with few offsets and the flowers are white.
The ML 677 plants all a lot smaller bodied and are more freely offseting while the flowers are pink.

Nice to see the white flowering form. Never seen it before.

I acquired a white flowered clone some years ago, nearly lost it in a bad winter when my heater failed, but it is now healthy and offsetting well.

I was intrigued about the different colour spines and flowers of the while flowered form, and so I managed to contact the original discoverer of this species, Martinez-Avalos.

He told me that "En su habitat mammillaria schiedeana subsp. giselae existen algunos individuos albinos pero muchos acutores la incluyen como una forma albiflora, pero es muy comun ver este color en campo. para mi no existe una clasificacion con la forma albiflora. ".

This means (approximately!) "In the habitat of Mammillaria schiedeana ssp. giselae, there are albino plants which many authors include as f. albiflora, but it is very common to see this colour in the field. To me, a classification of f. albiflora doesn't exist"
