This is just when it arrived....

and this is now, after some 9 months...... I am not really sure what I should do with it, since the upper columns {see the tiny pup in the upper photo] have grown quite wide and heavy...

Thanks to jono and to this wonderfull community for all the help to my questions :) Keep it up!

I'm new and young, been lurking this forum for 2 years now and have finally joined the community. I've finally let mum give me a section of our back yard so I can start up a cacti garden! I'm not sure if I should start from seeds or from cuttings, but if anyone has any freebies to spare i'd be greatly appreciated!

I'm in northern suburbs of melbourne
