This cacus looks somewhat like – Dave’s garden


No …, This is a Mammillaria. Look where the flowers are coming from, between the tubercles from the axils. Turbinicarpus (and more other cactus) will bloom from the areoles. Not really sure of the species, a bit like compressa, but not quite. I’m just not sure, but a nice looking plant. Is it part of a clump or are those individuals?


Thank you Sir for the ID and the difference from Turbinicarpus. I think those are individual plant, but I can not confirm, because it’s my colleague who visited the place. Attaching a picture that suggests the place is a nursery.


Mammillaria possibly compressa


Thank you very much, Sir.


Looks close Giromagi


I accept the id as established previously.
