Hi folks, I tip my hat to you.

I bought this Mammillaria last year and still haven't figured out which one it is. Any ideas? Big Grin No blooms yet, so I'm unsure on bloom color.

No, I don't think so. I'm surprised it hasn't bloomed.

Thank You!

I am too about the blooms! I can't remember when I bought it last year, but I'm hoping with a cold spell in the garage, it'll produce some blooms for me this Spring sometime.

Those periodic long spines and the spiny tufts (as opposed to cottony tuffs) at the base of the tubercles should help with an ID.
