Mammilaria hahniana     10/21/20
This is one of my several more than 40 year old plants. It weighs about 30 lb (13 kg). Another winter bloomer. It looks the same right now (11/29/20), in my greenhouse. The lumps of plant you're looking at are about 6 to 8 inches (15 - 20 cm) in diameter. You don't often see 40 year old Mammillarias. Most people think of Mammilarias as fist size, maybe. I wonder how many plants have died at my hands these past 40 years. Tens of thousands, maybe.   (40/48)
