I inherited this Mammillaria about 15 years ago and for most of that time it was indoors and didn’t grow at all (scroll left to see previous pics) but since being outside with more light during the summer it’s grown well, filled out and you can def see evidence of new growth. Do these flower? Maybe this year it will finally do it 🤞🏼 #succulentsunday #cacti
Thanks QT 😊 I’m not sure how old the whole plant is, but I’ve had this in my possession for at least ten years, and it wasn’t that much smaller. It wasn’t repotted for a very long time so didn’t see any new growth or offsets form until in the last twelve months after it was repotted @QT
This one has been through it - it's been quite susceptible to rot and just when I'm ready to bite the bullet and get rid of it, it only springs back! Now, it will get a better pot in spring, as I don't think it's been repotted in years. Never seen flowers, and haven't yet been able to narrow down the genus, other than potentially another Mammillaria - either Mammillaria elongata or Mammillaria gracillis 🤔. Each stem is quite narrow and tiny, but seems to readily form new ones.
