Mammillaria perezdelarosae

Mammillaria perezdelarosae is one of the prettiest members of Mammillaria genus. It is very small plant in the wild, grows much larger in culture. Plants are tightly wrapped in white spines, with dense flock filling the space between tubercles, and neat rows of contrasty dark and hooked central spines.
Plants are relatively easy in cultivation, a bit slow from seed - but that is expected for small plants. The flowering season is winter, but early summer blooms are also often seen on larger plants.
