Sometimes plants do strange things. They don’t grow the way you expect them to grow. Some cacti species are very vunerable for influences of their environment and shape themselves into a cristate and with a cristate you never know how it develops. These pictures are of a Mammillaria specie in our garden.
For the sheer fun of it: a photoshopped crossbreed between a mammillaria and a notocactus.
We named it Notolaria Cactus
This Mammillaria cactus flowers approximately 10 months per year in our garden…
Often the beauty of a plant is in its details; especially with succulent plants but than these are also our favorite type of plants. Just look at this Mammillaria specie; prickly with some color.
