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 MammillariaCoryphanthaEscobaria, NeolloydiaThelocactus 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 register to join our website, and look at our free content. Mammillaria Society members will be given access to a Members Only area, which includes digital versions of our Journals from 2011 onwards. These may be downloaded, but please do not distribute further. Please use the email address that you gave us on your membership application, or used on Paypal, so we can match you, and hpefully we'll do that within a few day sof you registering. If you have any problems, please contact the webmaster.



All the Journals for 2015 have been made available for Members to download, and all members for 2015 should now have access to the 2015 Members Area. Members renewing and new members will be given access to the 2016 area during March, once the February journal is uploaded.
