This is a Mammillaria I bought wit other cacti from a man in Austria (remember the 30 cacti I showed here). Today I decided to re pot it as it stopped flowering. I had to break the clay po as there was no way I could get it out.There was almost no soil only roots. I cleaned and pruned them. God knows when it was last given fresh soil. It looks very old- to believe that man it is 18 years old. Now it is in a new pot looking happy. I labeled it M. Zeilmaniana, is it?

It could be, Sandi (see this topic http://mammillaria.forumotion.net/identification-mammillarias-f11/mammillaria-zeilmanniana-or-not-t389.htm?sid=df41a6cccca6588f40d110d58f3f1417), the nurserie forms have very unuasual flower colours. But at first sight I was thinking on M. crinita wildii.

Thanks Hugo,
In the background of the last picture is a white flowered zeilmaniana and they do look very similar, that is why I put the same label to it.
