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 !

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....
