WELCOME TO THE MAMMILLARIA SOCIETY

 

 

On this site, you'll find details about the Society, about membership, and about our Journal and Annual Meetings and Shows. 

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. 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.

You do not need to register to look at our free content. You can see our events for the year, and there is a lot of information in the Plants of the Month section. This is not being added to as it would duplicate a lot of what is already on the Mammillari Forum as detailed above. There are details of other useful websites etc. 

You should register if you are a Mammillaria Society member, and would like access to the Member's area. To do so click Register at the top of the webpage and you will be able to enter your details. This will be retained on our system, but you won't be able to log in immediately, so don't panic! Just send an email to Chris Davies (details in the Journal) or phone, and he will then complete the activation and give you access. This Members Only area contains digital versions of our Journals from 2011 onwards which may be downloaded, and in time more information about our activities and events. The provision of access will typically take up to a few days after contacting us. It is unfortunately necessary to do it this way rather than an automatoc registration, as we have been receiving a lot of false registrations recently and the workload to remove these is much more than registering bona fide Society Members.  

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

The Society makes an annual offering of seed, which is free to its members, apart from a smal charge for postage and packing. 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 2018 Offer will be first made in the November 2018 Journal, and subsequently will be posted here.

 

Our previous offers can be seen for reference:

Subscriptions for 2019 (Unchanged from 2018)

 
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 2017 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.
 
Pricing is shown in British Pounds but you will be billed in your local currency. This means that Mammillaria Society membership is now available throughout the world.
 
PLEASE NOTE: Your Paypal receipt will have an old email address on it. If you need to follow up anything connected with your transaction, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
