I have started growing one of those this year. It has grown from 4" to 2ft since I planted it. No sign of fruit though. Maybe next summer. ☹️

I think most species need to get to 2-3 metres before fruiting!! I actually don't like the fruit taste, but find it interesting to grow!! Once they get going with growth though, as long as I give it lots of water it grows in front of your eyes....😀😀

Amazing. How long did the cactuses take to grow in? I’ve had the same 2 leaves for about 3 weeks
