Won this at a branch meeting raffle. Loving its lemon yellow flowers, but would love to know what it is. Thanks

I agree - Parodia (Notocactus) warasii.

Just taken attached photographs of a “rescue plant”, you know how it is ... from the brother of a friend. Given TLC, new compost & water. Couple of years ago it was close to being a gonner.

Always assumed to be a parodia. Looks the same and in full flower today. Can I give it the same label?
