Most of this species are actually under water during the rainy season so enough water is important during growing season. Easy to grow and in flower as long as they are growing.

(plus $4.00 surcharge)
MAMMILLARIA
There are so many different kinds of Mammillarias! Some are very easy to grow, those with hooked spines are a little more difficult. A shallow, smaller pot helps with the difficult ones. A little charcoal in the soil mix helps with the M.carmenae, M. plumosa and M. pennispinosa types. A little gravel in the soil mix helps with those species with a root body bigger than the head. Most appreciate regular water and a little shade in hot climates. Pilbeam's big book (The Cactus File Handbook #6) MAMMILLARIA is an absolutely beautiful reference. All the name changes are there. Superb color pictures of each species with culture notes. It's in alphabetic order with a full list of unused and old names. If you collect Mams. - you have to have this book!

NIVOSAI think this was my first Mammillaria. It still is a favorite. Bright gold spines, lots of white wool, red flowers and fruit. It is from the West Indies, so give it some extra drainage in the soil.
SMALLER PLANTS: Not a lot of color yet but they do grow up. 1�" seed grown.$3.50
LARGER PLANTS: Pretty, apx. 3" plants.$5.00
PLUMOSAFeather covered pillows is a good description for this plant. White, soft and fluggy - no green plant visible. Prefers a shallow pot and a little charcoal will keep it clean. 2" plants.$4.50

REBUTIA
We know the European botanists are moving the names REBUTIA - SULCOREBUTIA - WEINGARTIA around at a rather alarming rate. Until they come to some rational (??) conclusion we are using the names you can find in books printed to date. A good reference is by John Pilbeam, "The Cactus File Handbook #2 - Rebutia". An easy group to grow if you keep them growing! A brown crust will creep up from the base of the plant if they do not receive enough water to grow, or are kept in a too hot and sunny location. The two inch bright flowers are well worth the effort to grow these small plants.
FABRASII MINIATURE form (R 687)Tiny �" green heads with stiff, fuzz-like small spines. Beautiful red flower. Forms a small hemispherical plant of many heads. Apx. 2�" multiheaded plants (5-6 heads).$5.00

Add gravel or pumice (not sand) to potting mix for extra drainage in soil. Neat 2" clumping plants with 3-4 pups.$6.50
HELIOSA v. CONDORENSIS (R 314)This plant grows larger than the species. It has very short, pectinate gold and silver spines. The flower is a surprising dark red. These are nice multiheaded plants 2�"-3" in diameter.$6.00
KRAINZIANAA very short spined plant with spiraling ribs of white aeroles. Dark red to orange red flowers. Handsome and easy to grow. Seems to flower several times a year. 1�"-2" plants.$4.00

SULCOREBUTIA
(See note under REBUTIA). As easy to grow as Rebutias but the large roots prefer a larger pot and a little more light. The roots are often larger than the plant body. John Pilbeam's book "Sulcorebutia and Weingartia" is an excellent reference with beautiful pictures of each species. He also makes some sense out of the name shuffling going on now.
ARENACEABeautiful plant with a milk chocolate colored body, very neat pectinate spines and a huge, brassy-gold flower. 2�"-3" plants.$5.50
KRUGERI KK1260This plant has a purple green body with pectinate spines. Very compact and neat. Instead of the usual red/orange, this clone has a deep gold flower. Nice 1�"-2" plants.$5.50
