Mammillaria theresae
forma polytomica
CACTUSPEDIA       

 


One of the most sought-after forms of Mammillaria theresae.


Comment: The polytomy is a particular form of cristation in which  an apex divides  in numerous new apexes. If apex divides in two we have  the common dichotomy. These particular forms of cristation  give origin to individuals each different to an other. The obtainable features are very various and beautiful. Some plants are really spectacular. Some plants have both crested and polytomic stems.
