Echinocereus laying

Plants received pretty fast . They are doing well and in quarantine until they can be placed with the rest of the collection. The plant has no flowers at this time, but it is putting out a few babies. I’m happy with the last two plants I purchased from Planet Desert.

Looks bigger than I expected (as do most of the plants i buy from Planet Desert). I love it and I am looking forward to seeing it bloom.
