Mammillaria plumosa

Here in Portland we're quickly moving into the Fall season. The nights are getting a bit more crisp and the number of warm days begin to decrease...and the cactus flowers are less and less. A few plants, like the Lithops of course, will be blooming now, and we'll post some of those. But for today's plant I'm reaching back to an older photo of Mammillaria plumosa. This is a plant that blooms like mad, and for us at least, it does so throughout much of the winter. (Which reminds me...I have to pot this clump up this week!)
