    # 2 could be M warasii and 3 like a T verschaffeltii

    Hablu last ones got glochids. Im painfully aware that the flowers are fake, but didnt remove them on the supposed melocactus not to risk infection. Opuntiad "verschaffeltii" is one possibility, but ive just bought it and not seen the necessary leaves if young. Second, the stems are a tad short. Maybe because its young...

    Ive not heard of melocactus warassii, but think it could be melocactus broadwayii

    I recently got one like in your last photo! It had no ID, but it's also terribly terribly spiky. replanting it was a horror show .

    Post be a wholesale thing, you probably get shipped the same plants we do...

    I planted it using small tongs. Tongs are very useful for dealing with small cacti with lots of spines,hooks and glochids....
