Love it!

When I took off the wrappings around my Devil's Tongue I was simply in awe. This is a beautiful cactus, great color, and well formed. And, yes, it stabbed me but I think it's the way the Devil's Tongue say's, "Hello, I'm home!"It was potted in a pretty green, marbled pot that is so complimentary to DT's color. It will be displayed in a promenant place in my collection of some 20, or more, cacti. Think I might need some more.....
