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
