So, I caught the cactus bug. It's kind of like the agave bug, only they don't get so big so fast. I bought 3 babies today and, of course, they weren't labeled. OK, they were labeled 'Cactus with Straw Flower', but that doesn't count. I'd love some help figuring out what I have. I'm assuming these 3 are relatively common varieties considering I got them at a big box store from a big box nursery.

Gymnocalycium? Echinopsis?

Ferocactus? Blue Barrel? Golden Barrel?

This has got to be a Mammillaria.
Keep calm... and plant something.

1, Melocactus. Perhaps zentheri. Dont know them too well, especially as seedling
2. Ferocactus, but neither the golden nor the blue ones look like that. Looks more like young stainesii
3. mammillaria sempervivi or mystax or vagaspina(as a var of magnimamma

Thank you!

I just needed a definite idea so that I could target care.
If I get any flowers, I'll post them so we can know for sure.
