Hildewintera colademononis

This Hildewintera colademononis is now massive! I can’t believe how fast it is growing. I need to be careful handling this because every time I pick it up or turn it, I’m poked with its thin and sharp needles and they usually break off, leaving half a spine in the skin of my finger. It works well as a propagating tool when placed next to a sedum, too. Every time I check on the two, I see an impaled bean stuck to my Hildewintera’s spines.
