Mammillaria carmenae

Mammillaria carmenae is one of the beautiful Mammillarias, plants covered with bright yellow, white or rusty bristle-like spines that hide the stem completely if grown on full light. Flowers are white or yellowish, like on the picture. Pink flowers point ti hybrid origin, with closely related M.laui.
In the wild M. carmenae is a tiny plant, but in culture they grow large, forming pretty clumps. They present no difficulties to the grower. The plant pictured is about 10 years old from seed.
