Looks like Mammilaria gracilis. Hablu

RE: ID help needed

Yes, it is mammillaria gracilis. Notorious for breeding like rabbits with those pups that very very very easily fall off and root up elsewhere, haha.

Otherwise a very pretty and compact little plant.


RE: ID help needed

Thank you for the ID.

I have mammillaria gracilis f arizona snowcap which looks so different to this one that I hadn't realised this was related.

RE: ID help needed

mammilaria vetula ssp. gracilis to give it its full name.
I have 2 in a pot, one sightly different(convinced theyre 2 seperate ssp)
