Lol. A mexican fence post cactus is a rare specimen. Hehehe. Ooookay... Sounds like propaganda myths started by the government to stop illegal importation.

the one below set to show the plantations of them grown on desert/marginal land, but its in Spanish , so you may wish to just skip to the pics, masses of spines on these cacti 200 - 300mm long, which I guess harvest the dew.

☽Ţ ҉ĥϋηϠ₡яღ☯ॐ€ðяئॐ♡Pϟiℓℴϟℴ, in the video labeled Cactus collection 2012, at 5:28. What is that cactus (?) in the pot?

I see it around a lot but have never come across it for sale or with a name attached.

If anyone knows that would be amazing.

Great videos, always enjoy looking at advanced gardens.

That's pachypodium lamerei. Not a cactus, but very cool plants!
