|A new member is trying to identify a beautiful little cactus here: The thread "Cactus in bloom. Know what kind it is?" in Plant ID forum Thought maybe someone here who grows cacti might recognize it and be able to help.

|Okay, somewhat difficult to say...I believe it is a type of Mammillaria. It looks to be dichotomous (branching-splitting into 2 heads). Mammillaria perbella & ,parkinsonii are known to do this (although they are not the only ones). They are both variable. I think M. perbella has darker pink blooms, so I'm leaning toward M. parkinsonii. This is a very large genus, so that's my best educated guess.|
