Purchased Three Items

All three items came packaged spectacularly, cacti healthy and loving the beauty of them . The cholla is my favorite. But again, they’re all beautiful. Nice size, too.

Beautiful, uncommon cactus

Gorgeous cactus, I'd never seen anything like this. Absolutely love it. However, I believe the one I received was infested with scale bugs (see photo) and they have since migrated to the rest of my collection. They're easy enough to get rid of, so it's not a huge deal, but still annoying.
