Just wondering,what does var decipiens stand for or mean?
How did you get it to flower, where can you get this plant?

No idea why it's named decipiens, and when I googled the word, it doesn't make sense.
I got the plant from a GDO event in hortpark.
Cactus are usually ignored in the afternoon sun and rarely watered. I don't even fertilise them. They get a bi monthly soaked.

Do you immerse the pot partially into water?

I immerse the pot into the water until all the substrate are soaking wet, but not the stem of the cactus, and then I rinse it dry, and leave the cactus to drain on newspaper, which tends to soak up lots of excess water. Only need to do this once every 2 weeks.

Ariocarpus kotschoubeyanus var. elephantidens
This cactus does nothing at all. It sits there and barely grow, but has an interesting expanding star shape.

Flowering. I think they are both Mammillaria. I think the one on the below could be Mammillaria microhelia, the top one is a fish hook, maybe Mammillaria nana or duwei.

I don't feed nitrogen. To get them to flower, you must hold the watering for at least 2 weeks to 1 month, then water very deeply by soaking the entire pot into water to simulate very heavy rain in the desert.

This old echinopsis subdenudata made quite a few pups, and can flower in rather dim light. http://i498.photobucket.com/albums/rr346/trelch/P7061222_zpsoyqaspgx.jpg

Daughter flowering on 17 Feb

A cactus that comes with lots of flowering buds. Some kind of rebutia. Someone suggested Rebutia minuscula
