😭😭😭😭 So very sad. This is a at least 15 years old. My son got it when he and the plant were very young. It has grown to over 6" across. Too much moisture. 😭😭😭😭 #rotten #cactus #devilstonguecactus #devilstongue #ferrocactus-latispinus #ferrocactus #deathsentence #southerncalifornia 20 March 2020

Katy, I have really enjoyed this one. My boys picked it out when they were young. It took years to bloom, but worth the wait. 😁 @gjones

@robbinb if you tap on this cactus photo, and you can scroll over by dragging photos from the right to left. Then you can see the whole cactus. ❤️

Thx for the info. I’m new to the website and am not good at negotiating through it so far. Not a computer person. So far when I tried following a couple people, I somehow deleted them?! It might take a minute. Trial and errors!!! Loved looking through your plants. Thx again.

I removed this #cactus from the ground to have more control over her. She is doing fine. #ferocactus #ferocactuslatispinus #devilstongue #devilstoungecactus #southerncalifornia #california 21 October 2018
