Mammillaria perezdelarosae ssp perezdelarosae

  • First description by Bravo & Scheinvar, Cact. Succ. Mex. 30(4): 76 (1985)

  • Body: Plants solitary or forming clusters with the stem covered by spines. Stems depressed globose to short cylindrical, bright dark green, to 7.5 cm (3 in) high and 4.5 cm (1.8 in) in diameter.
  • Roots:
  • Sap: Usually without latex.
  • Tubercule arrangement:
  • Tubercule: Conical with rounded tips.
  • Axil: With bristles.
  • Radial spine: 30 – 60, pectinately arranged, needle- to hair-like, white with yellowish bases, 2 – 3.5 mm long.
  • Central spine: 1 – 2, ascending, dark red, 11 – 14 mm (0.4 – 0.6 in) long, lowermost one hooked.
  • Flower: Greenish white to cream, to 20 mm (0.8 in) long.
  • Fruit: Red.

  • Flowering period in Cultivation (Europe):
  • Minimum temperature:
  • Habitat Substrate:
  • Geographic Distribution: Jalisco and Aguascalientes, Mexico. Altitude 2.000 – 2.400 m.
  • Comments: This species initially forms a simple unbranched plant that is quite narrow at the base and becomes wider as it becomes taller, much like a child?s toy top. A supporting device may be needed to avoid toppling over. With time, offsets will form. Occasionally, plants will offset when quite young, and dense clumps of spherical bodies will result. Growth is slow to moderate, and the best plants are grown somewhat slowly to conserve the dense spination.
