I got this one given to me when i bought a hanging chamacereus from Ebay the other week. The root tuber is huge so i have planted it in free draining soil but have not watered it yet.the plant is 16cm across so i am assuming that it would be pretty old.

As a guess I'd say it's Mammillaria hahniana -"Old Lady Cactus" Probably need to wait for it to flower to be sure. Should give you an impressive ring of flowers when it does....

They must be pretty hardy!! it was in the middle of a bed of riverstone in full sun, all day for the last ten years. It was given to the lady i got it from by an elderly lady going into a nursing home.
