I bought this plant as Mammillaria albata Las Tablas, SLP. Hunt has it lumped as above, but Reppenhagen has it as a godo species. )and no more taxonomy debate from me!!). This is in a 12cm pot and hasn't shown any sign of wanting to offset - so far.

Maby you got the albata var. sanciro, who is mostly solitary growing. Sanciro has brown to black centrals and the normal albata white with brown tips. Habitat of Sanciro is Pedro Montoya (San Ciro). I don't know if Las Tablas is far away. The "normal" albata have 4 habitat places, all near Arroyo Carrizal.

You are absolutely correct, Hugo. I have mixed up a label here, and wrote the name down wrongly. My records show that this was actually down originally as bravoe v San Giro K4466 from Koehres seed. It was amended to albata San Ciro following a discussion with a fellow Mamm enthusiast who also had this plant from the same seed, because as it grew it clearly wasn't a bravoe, not with those spines. An dthen further amended to geminispina ssp leucocentra.
It just goes to show how important it is to keep the original seed or plant details!!
