Hey! I just bought these two cacti at Home Depot but Neither have identification except this one which just says mammillaria species but I'm thinking it may be a mammillaria plumosa or something similar, any thoughts?

But it kinda reminds me of my "mini cholla" (quotes because I don't know what it's really called lol)

This first one is not M. plumosa but, I'm not sure what it might be. There are so many Mammmillaria. Plumosa spines are very soft and don't stick up at all.

The second, I suspect, is Austrocylindropuntia subulata monstrose.

Both nice finds, especially at HD. Don't try to pull the fake flowers off. They will eventully be pushed off by the cactus as it grows. If you really hate them, use a pair of scissors to trim them down to the glue.

Yes, that might be it - Mammillaria candida (Mammilloydia candida is a synonym)
