A couple of pics from the past couple of weeks...

Epithelantha unguispina note the pink flowers and dark centrals....



My favorite Mamm of all time, Mammillaria theresae



Another great Mamm with fantastic flowers that dwarf the plant, Mammillaria albiflora



Echinocereus amoenus, another small plant that puts on a show..



Again E. amoenus, from the same seed batch, but this guy's flower isn't the same, still very striking though, might be a "double". Hope it flowers again and I can see if it stays the same..might be an interesting sport to propagate or something..



Finally a little bit of success, Mammillaria luethyi raised from seed, about 4 years old and look at the show this little plant puts on !!
A real little gem ! The plant itself is smaller than one of the flowers !

Those mamms are great. That luethyi has once again shown that it is still the best bloomer in the genus.

Yeah, I think the two tone flower really sets it apart from the other Mamms Not many have that effect, something you see more of in Sulcorebtias etc

It always reminds my slightly of Echinocereus. I have a very small plant with buds at the moment... here's hoping it's even half as spectacular as yours.
