It's awesome to see it in habitat (I've seen only pictures of that) - Bolivian Andes cactus at high altitude.

Microthrix > Unfortunately it's not mine. Took this picture on my vacation to Cameron Highlands in Malaysia. Not sure if it's for sale or not.

Those are nice healthy young specimens, Coral. Is that place also in Malaysia? I wonder what they use for potting soil - pure rock (because of the tropical rains) or something close to that would be my guess, but I've Notocactused in Malaysia ever.

cactusmcharris > It rain very so often in Cameron Highlands, so all the cacti are under shelter. I don't think is pure rocks as I ever bought some succulents and they are potted in soil plus fine sands.
