Astrophytum capricorneCommon name(s): Goat's Horns Cactus The Goat's Horn (capricorne) is named for the characteristic shape of its long, curled spines.
Recommended Temperature Zone: USDA Zone 9-11
Solitary globe or columnar cactus.
Growth Habits: This species will eventually slowly produce a tapered column up to 1.2 m in height.
Stem although young plants are globular, they soon become ovoid, and eventually columnar up to 1.2 m tall, 10 (15) cm in diameter. The epidermis of is more or less covered with the typical white woolly flecks characteristic of the genus.
Ribs: Usually 8.
Spines: 5 to 10 up to 7 cm long, Grey to brown wired, twisted, curved, flattened that look like the horn of a Capricorn. As plant ages spines get a bit more intense and messier, but relatively sparse, they are stiff but pliable and fragile, so, plant should be handled with care. The fine spines of this species are an optical artifice supporting the grass-mimicry to the surroundings.
Flowers: Sweet smelling 7.5 cm wide, yellow with a red center.
Blooming Habits The Astrophytum capricorne blooms in summer. The sweet smelling 3 inch wide flowers (7.5 cm) are yellow with a red center. They are followed by a reddish fruit covered with flattened spines, 1 inch in diameter (2.5 cm)

Common Name(s): Silver Arrows.
It forms globular stems with silvery white spines with black tips up to 2" in length, and dense wool at the areoles. After a year the head of plant divided, than every heads divided again. Do you imagine how unusual will be this cactus?
Mammillaria nejapensis is very variable, especially for the length of the spines, and at the beginning there were two recognized varieties: var. brevispina and var. longispina, with respectively short and long spines, but they are merely local or individual variations. This species branches basally or more frequently forms large colonies by dichotomous division.
Description: This is one of the Mammillaria commonly called "Owl Eye Cactus", known for dichotomous branching (forking or dividing into two parts). Although dichotomous branching is not a common occurrence in cacti in general, it happens for some reason in this particular subspecies. What is interesting about this cactus is that it began as a single head, and it has now divided twice, forming what will be four separate branches. When the division process started, it was obvious that four heads would appear, but I don’t think the one head divided quadruple. Most probably, one head became two, and then those two immediately divided.
Description: The Beaver-tail Cactus is a smaller prickly pear cactus, and it will often start blooming when it has only two pads. Beware that the glochids (these little barbed bristles organized in clusters) can penetrate the skin.
Flowers: The beaver tail cactus has 2.6-3 inches wide (6-7 cm), fuschia colored flowers in March-April. The spineless fruit is dry when ripe. The seeds are 0.24 to 0.4 inch in diameter (6-10 mm)
