This is one of my fave specimens, nice globular cacti, easy to grow and nice pink flowers, all i need to know is what it is.

Hmm that looks a lot like a Coryphantha sp., looks like there is a few little pups around the base. I would love a pup or two.

Anyone else think it's a Coryphantha sp., was thinking it looked a lot like C. elephantidens.

Nice cactus!!

It is a rare collectors plant if it's the one I am thinking it is. Most of the genus is pretty much rare & collectable. Will trade you something nice or so Wink

i think it is corypantha as well. prehaps elephantidens but i am not sure...the spines seem slightly different...but i know little about the genus.

Yeah the one you have Kada looks a lot like the specimen shown in a book I have by Miles Anderson. The one hornet has looks exactly like the specimen in another book I have by Rudolf Subik & Libor Kunte. The latter specimen has a nice big pink flower sitting on top.

That said I have never grown them and only know them from the literature and internet. Try having a look through the genus and also Coryphantha elephantidens on the cactaceae here I did it for you. Check this next link: Coryphantha elephantidens

Oops! Double post.

Embarassed

EDIT: Might as well just add. I am certain it is a Coryphantha sp., getting the species right could be tricky but I am going with my previous answer.

Give them atleast a week to heal after severing from the mother keep them in a nice and dry, but shady area (indoors is probably best). This will give me time to organise your plants anyway.

Not wanting to be a leach here, but happy to take a pup off your hands for some of those seeds I mentioned in an earlier post.
