Peculiar ancient looking cactus, Species?
Hey everyone. I picked this gem up at a home depot of all places but I am absolutely stumped as to what family it belongs to. There are multiple offsets/pups that are growing outwards from the base. They start off looking like some type of edible sprout and eventually take on its mothers form. Most thorns look like dried twigs with just a few actually being sharp. Any thoughts on what I'm dealing with here would be appreciated
