All cacti flower but some do easier than others ;-)
For beginners in cacti growing I'd recommend species
of the following geni:
Mammillaria, Rebutia, Gymnocalycium
You can sometimes get them at your local flower shop.
Most important in cacti growing is that they need
a lot of sun. And keep in mind that they are no
waterplants ;-) but nevertheless need regularly
water in the growing period which lasts about from
March till October.
In winter they need a cool ( 5-10 C), dry, and sunny
place and no water.
Hope that helps,
