Three Mammillaria napina blooming their socks off today! These are between 17 and 22 years old from seed.

Fantastic, I don't grow this Mammillaria, but it looks absolutely worth it!

It's not an easy cactus to grow. Especially that well.
I had one on it's own roots for years. It grew slowly if at all, never flowered and then I lost it.
