I think this is some type of Gymnocactus. And to use a Garden Web term, its also pup-iferous.

According to flower and spines it seems to be Gymnocactus knuthianus. Though it surprises me that it is offsetting.


RE: A Gymnocactus, I think

Looks like Knuthianus to me too, (now Turbinicarpus knuthianus thanks to the lumpers), according to Backeberg's lexicon the species sometimes offsets (becoming puppiferous).
