I have one mature specimen plant available here, smaller sizes available through main shop. Very difficult to find them this big.
This species has a large bulbous base and is covered densely in trichomes which help protect it from the sun. In cultivation they stay fairly small, but some can get to 18" in height. A must have for any collector. Used frequently for hybrids for its unique shape
