A new species of Mammillaria was described recently: Mammillaria bertholdii. It’s a sensational new miniature species discovered in the Mexican state of Oaxaca. There is no easy answer to how this new species fits into the genus. The location suggests it belongs in the M. napina group, but flowers and seeds suggest it should be in the M. saboae group. However, the M. saboae group isn’t known to extend into Oaxaca. Perhaps this means there are other plants from the M. saboae group which are yet to be discovered! Only time will tell.

There is an article in the latest copy of The Cactus Explorer, available as a free download here.

Pictures are property of Andreas F. Berthold and Thomas Linzen.

Maybe this will be easier to grow than M saboae. Those spines look amazing.

Well.. I’ve sold 8 planters this last week on FB. Life couldn’t get any better right now. I’m focusing more on finding and making more planters in the next few months, so that hopefully by next year I can start making some serious profit of this little collection.

Disocactus flagelliformis / Rat Tail Cactus
Timberline Gardens, Arvada, Colorado

While touring the grounds, owner Kelly Grummons mentioned a few of his favorite plants, including this rat tail cactus, which he has had since his youth.  He said it is like a mascot for the nursery - and it is quite beautiful.

I sold a planter to someone this morning who had an old rat tail cactus. They didn’t know what it was, but I remembered this post! I’m going to help them trim it out and add some soil tomorrow..

Oh, and they said I could have some cuttings.. 

:D
