Hi, I recently obtained this specimen and while it looks common enough it came without a label.

Could someone please help me out with a positive id?

It must be self fertile as it produced two large fruit, packed full of seed, and I only have the one specimen in my collection.

Cactus ID Please Th.493d51319f

As you can see it has yellow flowers with pink centers and it flowered profusely forming a ring or crown of flowers, with several open at once, very attractive Smile

Most likely Parodia mammulosa. Looks like you had quite a display of flowers on this one!

Thanks Lachy.

I googled Parodia mammulosa and although some examples looked quite similar, alot were noticably different.

So I'm still not certain.

Any other takers? Smile
