Thanks folks, Al, this plant is a must!, and downright easy to grow too, on my recent post I posted pics of the yellow/pink flowered form (C. bumamma) another easy plant, denser spination and flowers not as spectacular as this but nice just the same.

Thanks Dawn, I love the "fat" look of the tubercles of this species.

I'm sure that for one of these I will find some bench space.
