Hi friends!

I have a question:

At what age can get Mammillaria sanchez-mejoradae?, is true they are short lived?

I have 3 plants but are very young...

Regards

I've had one for 6 years according to my records, but it hasn't done much - still a small white plant which flowers each year. I have seen much better grown plants which have offset and look at least 10 years old, though that would probably make them amongst the earliest imports into Europe.
But I don't actually know what its "natural" lifespan actually is.

Has far as I can tell sanchez-mejoradae is long lived in cultivation. I've had some grafted plants of Rog 437 and MZ 1441 for a couple of years and while they flower they have not put on any grown.
The plant below was taken last week at a collection I visited.

I wonder how old that plant is? It was only just coming in to Europe (illegally, of course!), in 1998. I've seen something of a similar size as well.
Envy!!

That is a huge plant! Grafted I suppose?

I am sure that such a big plant with so many offsets is a grafted one. I have 2 grafted plants, one with at least 15 heads, the other one with a few heads (the main head of this one is almost 7 cm high and a little more than 5 cm in diameter). I expect that plants on their own roots will never grow so big (I have only 2 plants on their own roots). In nature, the plants do not grow bigger than about 1 cm.
