Not sure if this is what jfabiao had in mind for Happy Families but here are five Tesco bargains (must get round to removing the moss)

Thank you Jim, for making up for my forgetfulness. It should have been me to open the subject, sorry. :oops:
I had in mind something more on the lines of a clustering species like this, my oldest plant - Mammillaria geminispina - but anything goes, as long as it's a group.

So common it's now rare since as most collectors got rid of it.

This is my cluster of Selcorebutia Raushii in a 14 cm pot.
Not as pretty and large as some of yours but this guy is a real tough one to keep happy and takes forever to grow...
