Hello everyone!
"Wither flowers, withers the grass."
Ends bloom bokasanas and schiedeana.
The rest - a lull.

Great young plants! All look very healthy and very well grown.

Hello, Chris.
I am pleased to read your message.
With mammillaria all clear  Smile , but coryphantha grows slowly.
Coryphantha need to sow in the 80s. Today would have bloomed.
Like this.

I have about 30 species of Coryphantha, but as you say the seedlings grow slowly. I have been told by a well known grower of Coryphantha here in the UK, that they need a lot of room for roots. I didn't understand why until I visited Mexico and saw a number of Coryphantha species in habitat. Unlike most Mammillarias (which like to grow in rocky places), Coryphanthas seem to like to grow in more open, flat areas, often with quite a lot of grassy around.
These are generalisations, of course, but when I next repot my plants, I will give them good room for root growth.

Hello, Chris.
Your mexican observations are very interesting.
I often visit the canyon near the town. I am watching local xerophytic flora. I tried to reproduce the soil cut. Almost all of the pots I 9x9x10 cm. Mineral mixture slightly acidic ancient igneous rocks.  Arrow
I propose another topic for discussion.
For example: photo, soil, pots, film or sky, observation.

Very interesting that you use some mossy stuff around the M. sanchez-mejoradae. They grow in mossy pockets in habitat. Way to go!

Chris!

On the last picture mammillarii roots embedded in the vertical sections of turf taken in a rocky ravine.
Together with gravel, decomposed moss and lichen on top. (+ Beetles and other animals).
It is believed that mosses and lichens are pioneers in the formation of primary soils on rocks. I wanted to observe in the culture.
During the season, the lichens died - probably dry wintering they were not approached. First you need to learn how to grow moss, and then take on the cacti. Embarassed

In the ravine.

Very Happy And for a nearby rock grew endemic species of ferns. Laughing .
But we are moving farther away from mammillaria. Embarassed .
