how old is yours? looks great!
I guess this is why its better to post on the forum than on external hosting sites, because the photos are no longer available for people to view,

:( I wanna see!

Wait until it flowers that is one of the diagnostic features with some of the species.

Nachtkrabb thanks!
The big one in the picture was one of my first cacti. When it flowered (took a couple of years) I was surprised, had never seen a cactus flower before.
It even produced seeds, think that started my cacti interest.

Hi olof_n, this is a nice story going well with the plants. Yes, the big one looks like well kept for quite some years.

I love them, too. Mine has flowered this year for the first time after some years of 'nothing'. But it did it so in secrecy that I didn't see it, what a pity.

Enjoy them! N.
Love and Revolution!

Not sure what Lophophora exactly it is, please ID if possible, thank you.

This is my Lophophora which I grafted on top of Myrtillocactus Geometrizans. When I got it last summer as a gift, I managed to sunburn it first, soon after overwatered it, which almost killed the plant. It somehow recovered during the winter, and in March this year I decided to try to graft it in an (so far successful) attempt to save it.

No answers for a year, here is how it looks today, it is flowering for the first time. The scars are from mites from the end of 2020 summer:

Possibly "the green bodied one" L. kohresii?

This is mine.

Flower colour varies, as you can see from the links.
