Even though this size cactus is very common here...most of the time you can't get them this big in a pot because they weigh a ton!

Always great to have. I had to pass up one I wanted to buy. It wouldn't fit in my car. Frustration x10. It wasn't very expensive at $75,that wasn't the problem and it was going to be a birthday gift from my then GF. It just wouldn't fit in the trunk,the back seat..we tried.It was plenty heavy.
I bought an old man cactus instead. Still have that too.

Yes, it's frustrating when you get a good deal and can't transport it home! That's happened to me many times before. I have a small barrel cactus...it's only 6 or 8 inches in diameter and it's heavy. It's because of all the water they contain.
