Got three more little cactuses today.
Thoughts on species names?

Cactus #1:
Hard to see, but there's very fine curly "hairs" all over these two.

I like the purpleish spines on this one. Smiling

Nice plants!

1. I think is a pilosocereus of some kind, those come at different level of hairiness.

2. a Mammillaria the fish hook spines should narrow it down.

3. another Mammilliaria, I think this is a form of magnimamma.

It is what it is!

I'll check out Philocereus. Was pretty sure 2 and 3 were Mammillarias. Wasn't sure about that first one.

I'm loving finding Mam's lately. I never used to see them around much, but I've managed to gather a few lately. Smiling
