Couple of cacti for ID please

Postby IanFrance » Sat May 12, 2012 6:06 pm

I purchased these two unnamed cacti last year for 1.30 euros each and they have flowered this year. The first looks like a Parodia. I wonder if it is P. microsperma.

The second is maybe another Parodia, but I've no idea which.

I also paid the princely sum of 23 euros for a Rhipsalis monacantha, which I see is actually Lepismium monacanthum. Hope I can keep it through the winter!

P. microsperma usually has it's stem almost fully covered. Maybe P. massii?
