"This looks like Notocactus schumannianus Isyn Parodia schumanniana).  It looks terrific JM, never seen one that large.

Garg Ji, Dr Sangwan Ji,
This is Echinocactus grussonii as identified by Madhuri Ji & Dr Sangwan Ji.
Please check this link


And not Notocactus schumannianus as suggested by Dan Rhoads as the flowers are much different.
Regards,
Aarti
