The locally available cacti seeds are not very viable as I also have bad germination rates years ago. Only 3 or 4 seedlings emerged.

Difficult to tell looking from top without looking at the body and spination of the plant.
Any chance for a side photo ? Think looks like from the Mammillaria family but need side photo to have better ID possibilities
Thanks

Hi Matthew....here it is, with more blooms........

The blooms only last a day, not like my other white flowering one, which lasts a couple of day.

Here's another one, fully opened this morning. I guess it's cactus flowering season here :flowers:/>

Hi Mona

Congratulations of on your cacti - it looks like Mammillaria melaleuca
but I am not such an expert to say that it is definitely that !! Even for me correct IDs dont really matter, its the beauty of the flowers that count !!

For the second photo I am definitely sure this time that its a Parodia magnificus or also known as Notocactus Magnificus - I have a beautiful large plant as well, although as its winter here in Perth - no flowers !!

Well done, -

Hi Mona,

Your Parodia magnificus looks very cute even without flowers. Good growing!
