    Beautiful cactus. She started pupping only six months after I planted her (as a cutting) and is a fast grower, having grown over 10cm so far (in 7 months).

    Bought a 150mm cutting 2/6/2020, at the same time I received 3 X 40cm cuttings of an unidentified columnar cactus from a friend. 4 months later (after winter) Eileen sprouted some seriously thick and healthy roots. 1 week after sprouting her roots, I have noticed a pup start to form. The cuttings from my friend have yet to root.
    The reason I mention this, is it speaks to the strong growth genetics of Eileen. I’m so happy I just bought another 2 cuttings.
