All of my mammillariae are blooming! First, here's an elongata, "Copper king". This is the first time I have seen it bud so fruitfully.

Finally, mammillaria bocasana's shy morning blossoms.
Beaitiful - thanks for sharing :-)
this is my elongata from seed. First flower so sweet and delicate :)
Wow, yours opened so beautifully! My elongata's needles are pretty dense and strong, so the buds had a bit of trouble pushing out to open fully.
indeed but I thought I had a mealybug when I first saw the bud growing, I poked it and it doesn't move so I just left it, so pleased I did.
I'm sure it must be satisfying to get a flower on one you've grown from seed. Congrats!
