Aloe brevifolia

Mammillaria candida

...and finally

Echinocereus metorni

The mammillaria and echinocereus was difficult to get a good pic. The spines are so white that the light was reflecting back creating a glare.

Have fun,

Again, very nice choices to add to your collection. I'm in the same boat with CP in your Echinocereus metorni. It's totally new to me also. I like to see new species pictured. And doubly eager to see you post it's first flower.

Thanks. Amy, I will have fun growing these. CP and Al, I have been searching for this for quite awhile. There are a couple more echino's that I am going to get that I have been eyeballing. I just can't get enough of these. The mamm is in a 5" pot. The guy that I bought these from have some beautiful plants. All his plants he's grown from seed. His prices are very reasonable also.
