From left: Mammillaria polythele, looks like Aloe ferox, Astrophytum myriostigma, Echinopsis subdenudata

Mammillaria, Aloe and Astrophytum can take full sun. Echinopsis can take morning full sun. Protect from afternoon sun or it will turn yellowish like a tennis ball

Just to add that Mammillaria polythele, Astrophytum myriostigma and Echinopsis subdenudata can bloom in Singapore quite easily provided you give them sun. Mammillaria polythele produces bright pink flowers if given at least 4 hours of direct sun daily. That applies to myriostigma too.

Alamak, I had been giving them bright light only cos afraid that they might sunburn after spending time in Ikea. Challenging to give them full sun but no rain.

While repotting, I found 1 of them looking like this. Is the Astrophytum myriostigma rotting at the base?
