This is my rescue from Wal-Mart. They had 6 different cactus planted in a pink cereal bowl without a drain hole, and they were soaking wet. I brought it home and separated them, washed off the muck, replanted and was rewarded today with this yellow flower! I hope the others will feel the same way and bloom for me. It is a Thelocactus setispinus. It will stay small, no more than about 6-inches high.
This is another way to create a display of Devil's Claw. This was exhibited the Visitor Center at the Hassayampa River Preserve we attended last week. It's too much trouble to make one like this. If I could find one for sale I think I would buy it!
