Good morning;
I have a catus I've had for a few years and never seen a flower, I repotted so i took some photos while I had the roots out- very dehydrated.
I hope someone has some ideas, thanks :-)

hmmm I cannot upload photos- it says my max file size is 0mb?? the files i want to upload are about 70kb in size
EDIT: THANKS HELLO NASTY,  here are the links :-)

Hi mate,

You need to link your image from a 3rd party site/storage such as Flickr etc. The forums image storage is full.

Looks like a gymnocalycium baldianum. Mine looks identical to that. I'll post a pic later. Beautiful scarlet flowers.

Woah, HelloNasty is back on ACF? Hi mate, definitely one of the best growers! And yes this looks like a gymno, I think baldianium is right. Never seen one this deflated though.

This my Gymno baldianum. It used to be plump and fresh when I first bought it but I had a very bad year with mealy and it nearly died. Several years later it still hasn't plumped up, even though the roots a very health and it is growing well. I think this is more a natural look for this species.

Not normally. This plant threw pups after it nearly died. A survival mechanism no doubt. I will be removing these pups in the near future as I find that they retard the growth rate.
