    Cool stuff Red! I really dig the different forms of Astrophytums. A whole collection could be made with just their endless pattern and shape varieties.

    What is the grey grafted cactus about five up from the bottom? It's awesome, it looks armor plated!

    Very cool. What do you mean by "armor one"? I see the one that has been grafted, but don't get the armor comment.

    Not in the close up pics in the link, but in his photo above the sections of the plant look to me like they're flat with little rivets in them (the light colored dots). I see on the pics in the link that the sections are raised and teh whole plants is not as grey colored as his. I like his best!
