The first is Parodia magnifica. Sometimes the spines are yellow and sometimes white.

The second, I'm pulling a blank. Maybe a Gymnocalycium.

Agree with Daisy on the Parodia, hard to say what the second one is. I can see Gymnocalycium in it as well, but it does not quite look right for that. Any chance of a side-view picture?

That's a possibility.

I have not had a chance to return to that greenhouse, but when I do I will take a side pic! (:
It does look very similar to P. mammulosa! Maybe that's it!!
