Welcome to the Mammillaria Society
Here you'll find details about the Society, about membership, and about our Journal and Annual Meetings and Shows. We try to feature a different species of Mammillaria, Coryphantha, Escobaria, Neolloydia, Thelocactus or Turbinicarpus each month, and sometimes these include newly described species.
We hope you will share our delight in this genus of plants, that stretches from Central America and the Caribbean through all of Mexico and deep into the Western States of the USA. New discoveries are being made all the time, and this web site will feature them once described in the appropriate Journal.
Please also visit the Mammillaria Forum to talk with other Mammillaria enthusiasts in the UK and around the world, but do please note that while this is supported by the Society it is not run by us.
Please do register to join our website, and look at our free content. Mammillaria Society members will be given access to a Members Only area, from which digital versions of our Journals from 2011 onwards may be downloaded. The provision of access will typically take up to a few days after registration on this website, as it is a manual approval. Please use the email address that you gave us on your membership application, or used on Paypal, so we can match you. If you have any problems, please contact the webmaster for the site.
Check out the Plant of the Month - a new description for a known species of Mammillaria from Zacatecas.
The Journal for August 2014 is now available for download.
