Giant cactus first day in mother earth.

Giant cactus first day in mother earth. (Echinopsis terscheckii (Cardon Grande))

I planted the "Argentine Saguaro" today. It had,in less then a month grew 2". That was in a pot. Once it gets rooted in it might grow 2' a year- and thats with a winter dormancy.
So,in summer you can watch this cactus grow..if all goes to plan.
