I am not a professional nor an expert in Cactacea or Mammillaria 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.
