Well that's no surprise Hywel I shouldn't think there are very many that you haven't got are there , is yours in flower are they all the same colour ?

It's starting to flower now. Yes it's the same colour as yours.
There is a white variety of this species but I haven't got one.

I'm not a cacti person Mushy , our granddaughter use to collect them ,sometimes they made their way to us ,I'm afraid I just leave them to fend for themselves most of the time, we only have a couple of other ones ......
Thank you Hywel I haven't noticed a white one either !

15 Feb, 2012

 

lol :D I've just seen the name you put for it. It's Mammillaria - because the little tubercles are said to resemble nipples :o)
