So with the Sun out today, it was a good chance for a look around the greenhouse. And besides a Pseudolithos caput-viperae deciding it'd rather rot than sleep, all is looking pretty good. A few plants seem a bit confused though...
My seed grown Blossfeldia thinks it's time to start flowering...

Turbinicarpus jauernigii might have missed it's chance I think...

Mammillaria sanchez-mejoradae is a favorite Mamm and is always early to flower for me. Hopefully I'll see seed this year...

Turrbinicarpus (Pelecyphora) pseudopectinatus getting ready to put on its show. Tricky bit is to know when to give it that first water...too soon and you rot the plant, too late and the buds abort...aaargh!

And finally a plant that seemed to start flowering in Winter. Fantastic spination on this one when you look up close too.....
Mammillaria perezdelarosae ssp andersonii



So what's going on with your plants at the moment ???

That last Mam. is .... gorgeous I have seed of this I'm going to sow in spring Cool Can't wait for it now.

Only the Arizona snowcap and bocasana are flowering here today and the days are so short and sun is in short supply so this is about as far as they are opening Rolling Eyes:

Thanks guys, I've got another couple of very young seedlings coming on, so some day I hope to be able propagate this one, it's a spectacular form..
Good luck with your seed TasV...Nice pics too. I'm starting to think it's only white flowered Mamms that are early!

Thanks Nav... It's not just white flowered ones... I've got some sort of Mamm. labelled Mamm. elegans, syn albilinata, fauxiana (which I can't find a reference to anywhere... I thought it might have be haageana... don't think so now...), that has a nice row of pink buds all the way around due out in about a week. It has spination very similar to your Mamm. perezdelarosae too... the central points upwards instead and the radials are not so neat... will photograph it when it comes out.

EDIT: Also got one that looks something like Mamm. hernandezii (it isn't it though... spines are way too fine on mine.. another unknown Rolling Eyes) that has buds too.

Yes, TasV that one was seed grown and is about 4 years old I think. Pretty sure that it was from Vlado's seed and I ended up with 3 plants all told, so hopes are high to set seed this season !
