Mammillaria pectinifera SB530, sown 2011 from Aymeric de Barmon seed. A first for me. Smile



(yes, I know: I am lazy and should have repotted it a long time ago...)

That's great, and very well grown. Sure, a repot would be good soon, but sometimes seedlings do better when together.
I love this species, but find it rather difficult to grow well. I must try again from seed, sometime.

Nice plants. I have not even attempted growing from seed yet, and not sure if I ever will. I'm not knowledgeable enough and don't have anywhere to keep them at a constant temp. I admire all of you that can though. Beautiful plants, how long before you can expect to see flowers?

Do try, Susi. You'll be hooked in no time, it's a lot easier than it sounds. A lot of Mammillaria will flower on their second year, most in their third and some will test your patience but they will all be worthwhile the experience.
