Try M. backebergiana for the first one and M. decipiens for the second.

Probably...Smile

Hi Perry,

Chris as usual is correct with the two names. As your plant of m. backebergiana appears to have dark centrals it could well be subsp.
ernestii. Would suggest you lay off the water a bit as it looks a little bloated. Only water when the pot is completely dry. This applies to
most cacti. Never leave any water sitting in the saucer, empty away any excess after only a couple of minutes.

Excellent! Thank you very much. The M. backebergiana was so dry when recently purchased that it was literally falling out of the pot. I have only watered it once by sitting the pot in water for a few minutes and then letting it drain. There is no water in the saucer. Hopefully I won't have done it any harm as it's a beautiful plant.

Hi Perry,

If the plant continues to topple over, maybe consider potting on into a little larger pot. It does look somewhat top heavy.

It seems pretty stable at present, but I'll keep an eye on it. Thanks for the tip.

The second one looks more like camptotricha than decipiens to me.
