Hi there good people of aus cacti forum Smile


my landlords were removing a garden and saved this plant here...


it got trampled by the dog and broke so i took a cutting let it callous and potted it with some cactus soil sand and perlite. hopefully itll grow roots again Smile

can anyone tell me what it is by chance? it was twice as big before and an that was one of two branches, it also had curved pointy leafy things growing out from the bottom like a bush.

cheers Smile

Don't worry.  Most here will have killed their fair share of cacti Smile

A word of caution with this species.  They are notorious for their glochids and you will want to use tongs when handling them.  I had a couple but the nuisance value was too much.  Also butterflies are fond of laying their larvae on them with the result they get eaten before you know it.
