Ill look at the lables more carefully next time I go. There are 3 or 4 plants in the same zone and they all looked pretty similar to me.

For what it's worth, RE: Parodia comarapana, I have one of these although under a different name I believe (just a synonym I guess). It's a plant that simply never stops flowering. Much like M. zeilmannia this plant flowers for me all year round bar a month or two in the winter without anymore than a week between flowers, but generally permanently in flower.

If you always want a flower in your greenhouse it's a good plant to grow!
