Here I am standing on the fourth rung of a ladder, so my head is close to 3 metres off the ground, so this 80 year old beauty has to be 5.5 metres tall!

It's not really my plant though I do have a couple of pieces of it, not easy to handle as the main central spines are about 10cm long!

Found this beaty yesterday amongst a few other choice Cacti, this is just the pup on a much larger piece I got! It was quite a challenge to get it off the 80 year old mother plant.

I managed to get 2 cuts, both about 90cm long and 40cm wide! The little baby in the pic is about30cm, by 30cm, it's a big one.
