Dead cactus

matucanaFebruary 1, 2006


Unfortunately one of my alltime favourites died this winter due to cold and umidity.

I don' t know the name of the species but i would like to know because it's a wonderfull plant.

Is this a mammilaria(watch the curved spines)?

Thanks for any help

Looks a lot like Mammillaria bocensis. See what you think.

It is beautiful, sorry it died. I'll have to keep my eye open for one of these.
