Mamm Candida

As promised to Alfonso, here is my Mamm. candida, this is the pink spined form formerly known as Mamm. ortiz-rubiona, it's approx. 20 years old. I killed my white spined one years ago. :(
I love the dense spination on this plant... It's been a slow grower, but it's quite happy, I expect some buds to start forming soon. Will post another pic when it flowers.

Pink snowball!

Your's is a slow grower? M. candida is the largest of all the seeds I sowed this year, nearly two inches across. Maybe it slows down when it gets really covered in spines.

RE: Mamm Candida

Beautiful CP. I love the heavily spined mamms.

Thank you CP, a very nice one.
It seems like they are almost spine covered with age.

RE: Mamm Candida

That baby is twenty years old? On what planet? It must be starved for attention. Thanks for showing off your other flowering MAmm's. Nothing like a desert miles away from a desert. My oasis is getting larger by the year and I think I'm just going to have to give away any duplicates. Some of my Mamm's started to bloom just before I brought them inside and will pop open on sunny days. I can't figure if they usually bloom in Fall or Spring or both as happens some times.
