Frailea mammifera

We have always liked Fraileas, even if they aren't much of a commercial success. We seldom keep enough to sell, since they don't sell very well...which really is a shame. Fraileas are cleistogamous, which means the flowers can produce seed without opening. And they don't open unless the temperature is high in bright sun, which is something we don't get very much at this time of year. Usually. But this year, with temperatures running in the high 80s F, and no rain in sight, was an exception.
Check out the Fraileas. They're neat little plants.
