    Germinating Mammillaria theresae seed

    Are Mam theresae fruit deeply embedded in the stem of the plant? If so, I wonder what the advantage of that is? Could that have something to do with difficulty germinating the seed? I vaguely remember someone speculating that a lot of theresae seed is just not viable, and thats why it doesnt germinate of course. Any ideas about that?

    Here's another update on the M. theresae seedlings sown earlier this year in February.

    They've grown quite quickly in an enclosed container and have just recently been moved to a larger container.

    The original container stayed moist and damp which allowed moss to grow up and around most of the seedlings in there.

    A shot of a slightly colored M. theresae seedling.

    These seedlings have all been moved closer to the lights in an attempt to keep them from stretching.
