I love them and find them sooo low maint. But they are subject to abuse sometimes, I see them at WM with fake flowers glue-gunned to them.

I purchased one of those graft jobs with what I think was a cristate on top. The plant has grown out of being cristate and has long tendrils (?). I will post a pic later.

thank you for a beautiful article.

here is one view of the plant. You can barely appreciate the "brainy" look to it. In a year's time, it envolved into long branches. believe me, it had the brainy look, which is why I had to have it.

I think this pot was meant for orchids and I really liked it. I recently stuck the silvery looking plants in the holes, not really sure if they would survive, and to my delight, they did. They will eventually grow a long stem, but I will cut it and a new rosette will appear shortly.

Too cool. Do you keep this one indoors or out?

that looks more like Cleistocactus winteri than a Mammillaria
