PostSubject: Mammillaria.... or is it...?   Sat Dec 15, 2012 1:42 pm

Some of my Mammillaria's are suffering an identity crisis. Can anyone help? I have been having a lot of trouble with this genus. I believe some of these aren't even mams.



Mammillaria bocasana ?


Mammillaria elongata ?




Mammillaria Crinta ?










I don't think this is a mam.


I think this one is actually Rebutia miniscula


This is the only cactus I have successfully managed to sunburn. It's very sensitive to light.


Mammillaria elgans


Mammillaria prolifera


Mammillaria spinossisima var. Pico


Mammillaria matudae


I highly doubt this is a mam. Notocactus perhaps??


I suspect a mammillaria hahiana. Gets pink flowers very similar to the M. matudae.

This one looks like an eriosyce to me


Mamm. fragilis


Rebutia sp.


Notocactus scopa


I agree on your ID of the m. elongata, hahniana and mutadae

That's my opinion on the IDs. Hope it helps

Thanks everyone. Really helped a lot with some of them. Though I have to agree with hellonasty lol. Next time i might rig up a number system to save on the repeats.
