Wow, don't know what to make of this plant, looks like it's part Ariocarpus, part Mammillaria, part Pelecyphora. Crazy stuff. Amazing that we are still finding new plants today....not so amazing that plants or seed have already been illegally taken from habitat...

Fantastic!! I can't wait for this one to be available.

Looks a bit like a mamm. pectinifera x ariocarpus kotschoubeyanus.

I'm still eagerly waiting for Aztekium valdezii seed to become available.

That is so awesome, certainly looks like an Aroocarpus to me.

Looks like it's available, about 20 Euro for 10 seeds - roughly AU$3 a seed - but it's not allowed in Oz yet...

Probably be 10 years or so before you knew you had true seed as well I suppose !

Yeah damn shame that. I guess one could always risk it. After all they cant check every thing.
