Hi Vicent,

your second plant could the montrose form of M.painteri which you some times see, but I am not to sure. They are really ugly plants which would not find space in my collection, but then I will not grow cristates or, has far as possilbe, grafts.

Thank you for the identification, Tam.
The monsters also have their hearts I love you .
This monstrous, acquired in ELK is marketed as Echinopsis.

But I think it is Mammillaria. His spine is hooked.

Cool These monsters look like hairless cats, the Sphynx.
But there are very hairy monstersas the cv. "Oruga blanca" developed in a town near Valencia, Catadau, by Guy Xhonneux.

Now this looks more interesting.
I have seen pictures of number of these different clones of gracilis such has petit joeux, roi baudoin, belleavista, gracitulis, and the other clone of oruga blanca. I have been trying to find out where to get these from but have never been able to find out whether these are available from a nursery.
Were did you get your from and do you have a contact you could recommed.

Tam, the example that shows of the cultivar "Oruga blanca" is the first clone, which were very few copies.

The clone that was marketed was this:

The other day I was looking for a couple of "Oruga blanca" to the nursery of Catadau for a friend and I were very few other mixed cactus. Guy Xhonneux moved to Colombia years ago and Catadau stopped proucir these cultivars.

I was told that these were two cactus "Oruga blanca" but I have not yet seen the flower.

The cultivar "Roi Baudoin" has long central spines and pink flowers.
Is much larger. I did not see any copies in Catadau.

The cultivar "petit joeux" is smaller:

With regard the cultivar "Bellavista," I do not know to distinguish it from the "Arizona snow cup"

[img]http://www.cactuscenterclub.com/phpBB2/userpix/18_Mammillaria_vetula_ssp_gracilis_cv_bellavista_07_1.jpg [/ img]

They also had, at the time, other cultivars, and the cultivar "Catadau" cv "Osito blanco" and others, but no longer have any.

Send me your postal address and, if I have any "Oruga blanca" as I got to my friend, I send you it.

Give me an E-mail on mccormac@btconnet.com and we can talk. I have lots of spare documents seedlings and perhaps we can exchange some.

Yours, Tam
