Ralf,
those Turbinicarpus plants are cute. I will try to acquire a few species in addition to the T. valdezianus and see, if I can get them to grow in the ground here.

Fantastic plants and wonderfully detailed flower photos! I enjoy seeing many plants I am not growing. The small Mammillaria are special indeed.

Thanks guys! :)

Tim, indeed that's true. :D :D
M. monancistracanta is now lumped into M. nana ssp. nana. Probably had someone other the same linguistic problems and vote for an easier name. :wink:
