I am cleaning up my photo archives and would like to identify these plants so I can tranfer the pictures off of my hard disk. These are all at my house, so if you need a better photo, I can try to get one.

Sorry Kelli, unless someone more familiar with cacti pops in here, I am not knowledgeable enough to even try. Lali had originally asked me to be co-admin here but then a family health crisis has forced her to abandon the Cubits she created here for the time being.

I see that you posted on DG ID forum where faeden is helping, an even better place is in the Cactus & Succulent Forum over there, where there are several additional experts.

I didn't know how much traffic this site gets, but thought I'd give it a try since it is easier to download here than at DG.

I was going to say #3 looks like a Mammillaria but I see Marilyn (faeden) already IDed that. I have a couple of them. I love that bloom on #1, big and a fabulous orange, one of my favorite colors!

Here are views of the whole plants. (Yes, if they ever rename this town, I'm voting for Mealy Bug City. Whistling )

#3 It's a mammillaria with fishhook spines, or maybe they all are

#5 I have called this a notocactus, though I think that name is defunct now. It is similar to N. magnificus, though not exactly the same. I have one of those.

Cactus identification can be tough. Have you tried " http://cactiguide.com/habitsearch/ "

Sorry Lori, not much going on here in this Cubit anymore for over 2 years, most of us moved over on All Things Plants, (also created by Dave Whitinger), not sure if we have anyone who is more familiar with these plants but you can try posting the exact same questions with forums in both the Plant ID Forum http://allthingsplants.com/forums/view/plantid/ and the Cactus and Tender Succulents Forum. http://allthingsplants.com/forums/view/cacti/
