|4) I call this one the "finger cactus", b/c it looks like a cactus-handed man is spreading his fingers out along the dirt. Each...branch? finger?...appears to prefer growing horizontally for as long as possible, and only turning upwards at the end. You can see that there are perfectly lined up rows of little "fuzzy stars" up and down each finger. These resemble needles/spines, but aren't actually sharp. To the touch, they feel more like those "stick tights" that grab onto your socks, shoes, and pants out in the country...course, but also squishy. There are no visible blooms or new growth.

|Maybe Mammillaria elongata. Have you seen it bloom?
