Help with my new cactus
This is my first cactus ever, except for a lovely orange Easter cactus I have since last year. I need a little help here, please. Firstly, what kind of cactus is this? The hairs are soft, no spines or spikes. There were some dead flowers which I collected and they seem to have seeds in them.
Question 2, will the hairs always stay soft, I'm not a fan of spiky plants?
Thirdly, if I sow the seeds and they germinate successfully, might the flowers be the same colour as on the mother plant?
My son bought me the plant today, it is quite small, in only a 3" pot. I think I understand how to treat it otherwise, as I have grown lots of succulents.
Many thanks for any advice you can give me.
