lol, ok, yeah that's what I meant.

I was trying to find the huge ornatums you mentioned but did not. I guess astros are hard to ID when so big!

Fero gracilis, what a monster!

Wow those are some nice mexicans...Would you say those Lophophora and Ariocarpus are on their own roots? or would he trim the taproot to be able to keep them in those relatively shallow pots ...?

they are all on own roots im not sure what he does to the taproot if anything but can ask i know other growers that grow similar plants in similar size pots and they dont do anything to the roots as far as i know.
