Der Arbeitskreis für Mammillarienfreunde ist eine Gesellschaft, die sich ausschließlich mit der Kakteengattung Mammillaria und den verwandten Gattungen Coryphantha, Escobaria und Neolloydia befasst. Der AfM wurde 1977 von neun deutschen Mammillarien-Liebhabern gegründet und am 12. Dezember im Vereinsregister der Stadt Münster eingetragen. Heute hat der AfM ca. 370 Mitglieder in 18 Ländern. Dazu zählen neben Einzelpersonen auch eine Anzahl von Botanischen Gärten und anderen Institutionen in Europa und Übersee.
Mammillaria cacti are native to the Mexico where they grow on desert areas, dry scree slopes and hill sides where the nights are cool and the daytime temperatures are quite high. All of the Mammillaria cactus have small to medium sized flowers which are vibrantly coloured and produced profusely and readily in a ring around the top of the plant, they also readily produce seed bearing berries.Growing Requirements Temperature

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.
