And this is a bit of a joke, this is Mammillaria egregia (or lasiacantha v. if you prefer). It's in it's second year and wouldn't be 1 cm across yet, that pot edge is the side of a 65mm pot ! This thing is tiny, yet it reckons it's going to have a go anyway !

WOW Fantastic photos Nava. I had some Cintia flowers open today, I should have taken a shot. I will check them tomorrow and take one if they are still about.

I've noticed the same thing. How closely related are Mamms to Turbs?

Bit of an update with some recent activity..

Another Solisia, this seed from a different supplier and it looks slightly different. Also this younger, smaller plant is able to spread it's flowers amongst the spines a little easier...

Remember that mega tiny Mammillaris egregaria ? Here's the result..the flower's almost bigger than the plant!

And another. I'll have to keep an eye on this one as the flowers seem a bit mutated ? Might be only because it is it's first flowering though....
