    Grows very well as an intermediate

    Here's mine with a ventricosa x lowii for comparison:
    It grows well as a highlander, but slows down in the winter here in southern california.

    Wow, there's so many photos of it.

    Makes you kinda wonder why this hybrid so darn expensive and hard to find.

    People who grow it love to take it's picture and show it off.

    Truncata hybrids tend not to throw basals and don't vine as readily, so there isn't much to propagate.
