Just a few more....

These two photos are of a M. stella de tacubaya Rog 081 (corrected from 085).





And this is of a cristate M. sanchez-mejoradae. It is now in a 9cm pot, so much bigger than is typical.

I haven't been into the greenhouse for just about a week now, which is a shame, but today there were more flowers, despite the cooler weather.

So much coming on so quickly. I removed 3 scots pine trees last year, andI'm reaping the benefit of extra winter light - at least as much as we got!
My top dressing is just horticultural grit, by Bowland Stone, which I but from a stone and paving place just outside Tring, though I 'm sure its stocked in many places. This link is to their website. http://www.bowlandstone.com/stockists/

Some more coming into flower:

Mammillaria roemeri


Mammillaroa mieheana LJS2251

Mammillaria prolifera JL1261


Mammillaria goldii MZ766


Mammillaria longiflora SB1936


Mammillaria dioica SB1691


Mammillaria mercadensis Rog 722


Mammillaria jaliscana PN602

Mammillaria schiedeana Rog 577


Mammillaria schiedeana ssp. dumetorum


Mammillaria schiedeana ssp. giselae f. alba"


Mammillaria senilis white flowered form


and finally, my little Mammillaria bertholdii is already starting an offset, and also could the little red dot in one axil really be a bud starting to form? It survive dthe winter and has put out several tubercles already.

Thanks Chris for these nice photos.
The small red dot on your bertholdii is a flower bud.
I wonder if the label M. schiedeana giselae fma. is correct. To me, this plant looks like a form of M. carmenae.

Regards,

Wolter.

Today the red dot looks more like it is developing into an offset rather than a bud, but we'll see.

I acquired this giselae plant as a small grafted seedling in 1999, just 2 years after its at the same time as one that is the normal pink flowered form. I had a heating problem a year or two later, and thought I'd lost them. The stock had gone, so there was nothing else to do than trim the small plant and try to root it on. I was successful with both, though the white flowered form took rather longer. They were labelled as Clone E and Clone D (the white one), and I believe that they were from (illegally) collected seed. Cactus Art has a very similar photo to mine, though they say that this white form is a "garden form". The photo is at M. schiedeana f. albiflora
It is very slow growing, compared to the normal form, and I was interested why it didn't have a variety or subspecies name. I contacted Martinez-Alvarez who told my in an email that in habitat the flower colour varies from deep pink to white, and the spine colours and degree of plumose-ness also vary, and because there is such variation in the same locality, there can be no reason to call it anything than M. giselae.
I do agree that it bears some similarity to M. carmenae, though my one plant is much smaller, much slower growing, and doesn't appear to offset readily. Its locality is  near San Carlos, Tamaulipas, some distance from that of M. carmenae in the Altas Cumbres region of Tamaulipas, south west of Ciudad Victoria.

Its M. bocasana ssp. eschauzieri Rep 1266, which also has (had?) the species name of M. hirsuta. I guess its because it has hairs. They aren't as dense  as M. bocasana proper though.

Hi Chris,

I don't think that the last picture is haageana acultzingensis. The plant does not look like it and the label says conspi....... Have you perhaps interchanged the last 2 photos? The next to last photo looks more like acultzingensis, but I would expect that the real acultzingenis has a more open structure than the plant in that photo.

Thanks Wolter,

You are quite right, there were the wrong way round. I've been using the multiple photo insert feature and it really doesn't put them in as one would expect. This time my amendments went wrong - but they should now be right.

Just a couple more this time...

Mammillaria napina


and an update on my M. bertholdii. The red shoots turned out to be a couple of offsets, but on examination this afternoon, there are indeed two flower buds. It may not be long....
It also is quite amazing that the rate of growth is so fast. This was a tiny seedling last September, and now it almost covers the top of the stock.

And some more...not all Mammillarias, but Mexican anyway!

Firstly a Ferocactus schwarzii, which my younger son selected when he was 12, because there wasn't a Mammillaria ben......, at least Holly Gate didn't have a M. beneckei. His older brother, Mark, chose M. marksiana, obviously!


A couple of Gymnocacti (or Turbinicarpus, if you prefer).
Gymnocactus horripilis


and its newly described subspecies ssp. kvetae CH142 from Gilo, Hidalgo.


And now some Mamms......

Mammillaria sphacelata ssp. viperina SB836, from Zapotitlan Salinas, Puebla


A second flowering of my M. canelensis Rog 641


A vicious plant to handle, but nice when in flower, M. magnifica SB533, from Pelon de Amayuca, Morelos


and to end for today, M. guerreronis. This plant i snow 12cm tall, and is from seed germinated in 2010 of a plant that I acquired from B&B Nurseries in Tucson, and brought home wrapped in many papers of paper in my suitcase. I was told that it was itself a seedling from a plant from Zapilote Canyon, Guerrero, but no collector data.

I know its no longer springtime, but the flowers keep coming!

First Mammillaria mazatlanensis, flowering well, the best it has ever.



And then a couple of Mammillaria guelzowiana, the species with the biggest flowers of any in the genus, imho.

SB465, Absolo, Durango



SB1160, Rodeo, Durango



Mammillaria grahamii DJF1000, Rincon Mountains, Pima County, Arizona. These flowers have a lot of white at the edge, I don't know if that is typical of that location, or just the variability of the species. I have seen M. grahamii in habitat in several places in Arizona but not seen flowers like these before.

And of course its summertime now, and after a good watering last week, my plants of the Ancistracanthae series are flowering again.

First a general view of the grahamii, sheldonii, mazatlanensis part of the section,



Now Mammillaria schumannii Lau 049



And Mammillaria tetrancistra, grafted and a rather ugly plant, but when its in flower......
