Mammillaria pringlei

Mammillaria pringlei blooming October 9th in Hamilton, Ontario.

This plant probably has the longest non stop blooming streak of any cactus in my collection. It started blooming in spring a few weeks after it was moved outdoors and still hasn't stopped. At about 20 cm high and 15 cm wide it appears to be as large as this species ever gets according to the literature. Another one of those treasures from Sorensen's!
