I am not a professional nor an expert in Cactacea taxonomy. Any help with ID and spelling are always welcome. To up-date my list I've been using many books, journals, catalogs and other web-sites. It's been helpful, but I have more work to do. I only ship to the main 48 States. I do ship in the winter. I have 72+ hour heat packs for $3.00 each. No international shipping. Please read the front page for ordering information. Please list the name and number of the plant for ordering.

   Escobaria sneedii ssp. sneedii - Primarily it occurs on the tops of limestone ridges in areas of broken terrain, terraces, rim rock or in poorly developed limestone soil, the majority of the plants grow in cracks in the rocks on north-facing slopes between 1,400-1,800 m in elevation, rarely under cover, usually sparsely distributed among the shrubby vegetation of the high Chihuahuan desert -shrub and interior chaparral. Grows in dense clusters with as many as 100 or more stems in a clump. Each individual stem is 1.5-6(8)cm tall and 1-2,5 cm in diameter. Tubercles - cylindrical 5 mm long; On mature stems with upper surface grooved. Spines - 30 to 90 very small radials, typically white often brown at tip, fading to grey, slender and bristle-like, mostly about 1-2.5 mm long, radiating from areole and appressed against plant, sometimes with one to few short porrect centrals. Roots are fibrous. Flowers are brownish-pink in early April-May. Showy smaller, usually not opening widely, 1.2 cm long up to 1.5 cm wide; tepals brownish-pink (rarely pale yellowish, or whitish) in colour, usually with midstrip darker; stigmas white to pink; Fruit: Small elongate, 1-1.5 cm long, green to somewhat reddish. Notes: The subspecies leei differs from other Escobaria in densely its clumping habit, small stem size, and tightly, almost pectinate, spination. The wild population intergrades with other forms of E. sneedii in the Guadalupe Mountains. This is apparently a neotenic variety of the species in which juvenile spination is retained throughout the life of the plant. This species is closely related to E. sneedii var. sneedii from which it differs by having deflexed spines, rather than spreading ones, brownish - pink flowers as opposed to rose-magenta ones, and seeds 1 mm  long as opposed to 0.75 mm in length (01,02,05.
