cutting back pachycereus marginatus
Hi, a few days ago, I posted a photo of a 30+ year old cactus that I was picking up from a lady in another town.
I wish I'd brought a real camera! I took a few phone photos, but they didn't do justice to the process of moving the cactus. . . . as soon as I get time to figure out how to down load those poor quality phone photos, I will show you the pics of the front loader that the lady used to lift the cactus into my pickup. . . and how her husband kindly arranged it in the bed for me!
Here is a pic from my camera of my lovely cactus, once we wrestled it off the truck (no front loader) and upright position (and we didn't even bleed!)
By the way, the first owner had purchased it as a small cactus in a 4 inch pot . . . (bet it was from walmart or some chain, I'm guessing)
How to cut it down so it will fit in my greenhouse?
Next in line, is to read directions to post more than one photo to show you how it filled the truck bed. My sweet SO Jim, who came along with me to help with this .. . I told him 'we're going to go pick up a 30+ year old cactus; it's over 8feet tall, big spines and I need your help' he is so sweet- he said 'OK..'
