Hi K.W.


A very nice lot of Mammillarias. Especially the dichotomous types, my favourites. How lucky you are with all that space. Derek.

But I do not search for them.

Hi KW,
It AMAZING, i can't believe it!!!!!
South African flora on your door step indeed!!!! You can be proud of your collection.
Just a matter of interest. I'm Afrikaans speaking and Lithops common name in Afrikaans, is 'bees kloutjie' 'bees' means 'cow' and 'kloutjie' means 'paw' - it looks like the paw of a cow - Conophytum common name is 'baba boudjies', 'baba' means 'baby' and 'boudjies' means 'buttocks' - it looks like a baby's buttocks.
Sorry Mamms forum, i know it is not our topic, but i have no other choice to comment on KW's beautiful pictures of my homeland flora.

Don't worry K.W. and Mercia, there isn't a problem. Maybe it might have bene better to post this in "Other Collections" but I'm sure than many of us on the forum grown other plant sthan Mammillarias.
The original founder of this Forum, Hugo de Cock, is into Conophytums now in a big way, and other South African succulent, Haworthias and the like.
I think if I grew other than cacti (not just Mamms), I would grow Haworthias, it is just a lack of space that inhibits me. While their flowers are nowhere near as good as a bowlfull of flowering Conophytums, their shapes and textures, which after all, is what you see for most of the year, are wunderful.
