Hello everyone. I picked up this bowl from Home Depot today. It's definitely a rescue. I removed the fake flower and sadly there's damage to that poor cactus. Anyway I'd like an ID on the plants on the right please. I'm fairly new to cactus. I know the ones on the left from back to front are

Polaskia chichipe
Mammillaria elongata
Echinopsis oxygona

I don't know the ones on the right and center other than the two dark ones are a type of mammillaria. I will be repotting these soon because this bowl has no drain hole and the soil they are in is not the best. Here is the pic.

The ones on the right look to me like Weingartia Neocumingii, but I am certainly no cactus expert, just a girl from Arizona.

No weighartia(now parodia), just an echinopsis with a glued on flower.
Some mammillarias(elongata and something else, like magnimamma)
A polaskia chicipe...and either pilosocereus or cipocereus(not sure(
I recommend planting them individually. None of these like sharing a pot...

Thanks for trying Idontknow. I appreciate it. Skop, You mentioned the ones I already had listed. But you're right about cipocereus. I just looked some of those up and looks like cipocereus bradei. So only the Mammillarias on the right and the three in the center are still unknown. I already removed the fake flower.

Its quite simple to determine the genus actually. But...painfull.
Try poking your finger that the spines.
If it pierces your skin...and ends up hurting..,,
Pilosocereus
If it bends and pierces your skin...cleistocactus.
If it doesnt bend....echinopsis...sect trichocereus.
As for the mam....flower....and not even then..

Skop. And you have not answered my question. If you do not know please do not reply to my thread. Your comments have not been helpful. I Do appreciate the first commenter trying to help though.

Hi ketsui. Thanks for the welcome. I posted in my first comment the issues I know with these plants. I mentioned the problem with the pot. It will be dealt with. I may be new to cactus by but I am not new to growing plants. People please read my post first. No panicking here. Just waiting for an ID. I already have plants for what I want to do with these guys. Reading up is something I always do. I'll definitely update this once I settle the new plants in.
