Member Access

On registering you will not get the activation email. We have removed this owing to hundreds of false registrations from places east. Members of the Society who want access to the Members Area are asked to register and then email Chris Davies who will activate your account.


Please also visit the Mammillaria Society Forum to talk with other Mammillaria enthusiasts in the UK and around the world. On this forum there is a magnificent section called Mammillaria A to Z, which lists most Mammillaria names, and is a photo record of these plants in various collections and for many there are photos of them in habitat. We encourage you to use this, which you can without a need to register here or there.

We also have a Facebook Page which you can follow to keep in touch. You'll see a variety of posts interesting with images. 

You do not need to register to look at our free content. 


If you have any problems, please contact the webmaster for the site.




February 2021 journal is now uploaded in the Members area, together with the Index for 2020.

You can now join and renew safely and securely, using your credit card, through our association with PayPal, the world's leading on-line payments system. Alternatively you can download and print the 2021 Membership Application Form here.
UK Members using Paypal will be emailed a request for their current and past membership subscriptions to be considered as Gift Aid. The Society is in the process of applying for this. We would very much like all members to agree as it pushes further back the time when we have to consider again any increases in subscriptions. Do note that the only increases this year are to non UK membership, and these only to fully cover international postage costs.

The Society makes an annual offering of seed, which is free to its members. The varieties offered are usually not easy to find, and most, if not all, will have habitat information. Most often though, the seed offered will be second or later generation, owing to the ban of export of seed by the Mexican authorities.#, sourced from a vaiety of well known seed purveyors.


Our previous offers can be seen for reference:










Note: the seed list here cannot be used to order seed. Members please go to the Members area to find the correct form.
