Very interesting, be sure to keep the plant in almost 100% shade, if it's Monstrose growth it will be sensitive to sun light.

Yeah it looks to me like it has three growth points and is shredding the initial pink skin or whatever it is. Dont know if you have zoomed the pic but the aerola seem to be there but they are leaves as apposed to hair/spine.

I really hope it keeps it up cause ide like to graft a section possibly next season and multiply the beast. Im sure ill get some decent trades for another original monstrose button.
Fingers are crossed it keeps growing. Any normal pups will be chopped n tossed to give the power to the freak. Yeah.
