Mammillaria albilanata

Mammillaria albilanata is a classic 'white Mammillaria', first description is published by Backeberg in 1939. It used to be a well known and popular species, somewhat out of fashion now days.
The two plants in the picture are young seedlings, grown from Mesa Garden supplied seeds, and now blooming at the first time. They only started developing the white axil 'wool' that will eventually wrap the stems.
