Oxford Branch of the BCSS held the auction of John Warwick's plants yesterday, with lots of big, old, and excellent plants being bid for, with the top price in excess of £200 for a very lovely Mammillaria microthele in a 12" (30cm) pot.

My purchases were more modest, but I am very pleased with the plant below in its 33cm pot:

A recent purchase Tegel-10
Mammillaria albilanata ssp tegelbergiana

I have no idea how old the plant is, but it is a far cry from the formal description of a single headed plant! I suspect it is from an ISI introduction from around 1977, as seeds were not in general circulation until later, but it's difficult to check now.

That's a real beauty, Chris. I'm glad it moved to such capable hands as yours to get even better. Smile

Hi Chris,
Yes, nice group. Not so uncommon though I believe to offset. John Pilbeam does say clustering in time in cultivation. In fact, in Jonn's first publication Mammillaria, a collector guide p.132, is a photo of the late Betty Maddam's plant looking similar.
