Please see the Events page for details of our first Zoom talk on Thursday 18th April 2021.


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.

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.
