Love gardening, especially succulents probably cause I can forget them for ages. South east Melbourne area. Always learning.

Mammillaria Vetula ssp. Gracillis

No idea if this is right for the white one. Also the 2 similar looking ones at the back any idea what they may be? They have a yellow flower. Do I just break a part off to propagate same as a succulent, for the snowcap anyway? They're getting close to each now so thinking ill repot but worried ill kill them. #cactus #arizonasnowcap

I wouldn’t worry about them being close together. They can be cramped with very little water and still do fine. My cactus pots were crammed and they always seemed to like it more. They can live on very little water and soil. You can pull off a Snowcap and start it in soil like a succulent. 🌞

Your welcome. After you take off the offset, brush or dip some rooting hormone powder on the bottom. It’s helps to root it and prevents bacteria. 🌞
