Species: Mammillaria.

The best way to encourage flowering (by Hywel):

Keep them cool and dry in the winter.

In summer give them a good soaking every time the soil dries out.

Also give them a feed of tomato liquid about twice during the spring and summer.

Keep them in a light place, where they get direct sun for part of the day, but on a very hot summer's afternoon they may need a bit of shade.

Small cacti will need fresh COMPOST every 2 or 3 yrs.
