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.


On top of the cliff.


Average humidity place.


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