PostSubject: Primavera na minha estufa   Mon May 16, 2016 11:45 am

Challenged by Maurillio to join the chain of greenhouse reports, here's a bit of what's happening here in Portugal. I must explain that "spring" comes really early to my Mammillaria here in Portugal, courtesy of our mild weather and clear skies.

Mammillaria cadereytensis (2016.04.23)


Mammillaria candida (2016.04.16), a plant I rescued from the abandoned greenhouse of a cacti enthusiast that passed away a few years ago.


Mammillaria herrerae (2016.04.16), a seedling from the 2009 campaign.


Mammillaria magallani SB143 ex-Chris Davies (2016.02.25).


Mammillaria meridiorosei Dar154 (2016.05.08), 2010 seedlings.

Nice show! That M. magallani flowered a lot earlier than in our more northern climes. Its brother/sister flowered for me just about 4 weeks later. And the wool development on the cadereytensis is marvellous.

Thanks. Smile
The M. lasiacantha group blooms very early for us, January is pretty common. Smile

A few more. Mammillaria tlalocii FO229, two plants bought from Tony Irons a number of years ago, presumably siblings. One of them completely lacks centrals, the other has one short central. Go figure.


One unexpected find in a local, generic nursery a few years ago: Mammillaria phitauiana. It grows at its pace but I have the feeling that I'm not giving it the best care.


What's the current views on these, are they accepted at this forum? Anyway, Turbinicarpus viereckii subsp. neglectus L1159. If you're careful with the watering can they will make wonderful plants with the black spines protruding from the white wool. It is self-fertile and will yield a steady number of seedlings around the base. One very curious trait of this population is that all plants will flower in perfect synchronicity in the greenhouse.

Nice plants! and a good example of the variability of M. formosa.

We're going into a heat wave and the Ancistracanthae seem to love it:

Mammillaria grahamii (microcarpa) RH122


Mammillaria sheldoni (swinglei)


Mammillaria fraileana


Mammillaria mazatlanensis


(I'm naming them as I received them: I have a difficult time telling most of these apart...)

Thank you, K.W. Smile

This year we won't be attending ELK, we're a bit short of funds. Sad

Here in Lisbon the winters are never too cold and a number of species - particularly Mammillaria - are almost perpetual bloomers. Photo taken yesterday as well.

PostSubject: Mammillaria gieseckei   Tue Jan 10, 2017 1:27 pm

Hello Fabio,

Nice flowers, I wish I could have your climate right now.... Shocked

The plant above K 145/3 is Mam. gieseckei n.n., Calipam, Pue. Collector: Heinz-Josef Klein.
Mammillaria gieseckei is a natural hybrid, maybe between flavicentra and supertexta.

An oldish Mammillaria candida that I inherited:


M. deherdtiana, recovering well from a vicious attack of spider mites last year:


One of my M. parkinsonii, that got quickly to four very even heads and then decided to stay that way:


Two sibling M. tlalocii FO229, one with a central spine in every areole and the other completely devoid of them.

Well ahead of here in the UK, not surprisingly. I find M. parkinsonii quite variable in growth, I had a plant for a number of years, just two heads (from 1 of course) but last year each suddenly decided to split again. Why then? I have no idea. Spine variation occurs in a number of species, and I've wondered if it is differences in culture - light, water, soil - that triggers one plant to grow differently than another. But siblings and similar culture - just must be something buried in the genes that doesn't need external factors to cause expres​sion(or lack of!).

Yes, environment plays a major role in the way our plants look. Spine length as a response to sun intensity is an obvious one for me. When I receive plants from abroad, after a few months/years it can be clearly seen (this is a largely off-topic species, but one that clearly illustrates what I mean). You can almost draw a line on this Thelocactus lausseri to define the moment it came from France to the southern sun:


To stay on topic, there is one species with lovely hooked central spines that always stops producing them when I put plants in my greenhouses, M. nana subsp. duwei. I wish I knew why!

A few Mammillaria, as I somehow have quite a lot of species.

Mammillaria wrightii subsp. wilcoxii (meridiorosei) Dar154, one of the most beautiful Mammillaria flowers.


Mammillaria herrerae


Mammillaria baumii (I guess). Pity you can't smell the wonderful perfume.


Mammillaria schiedeana subsp. giselae ML677, a very nice mix of golden heads and delicate pink flowers.
