Rescued Cactus, ID Please!
    #17287087 - 11/26/12 10:40 PM (1 year, 10 months ago)

I felt this cactus calling my name while we were at a local garden looking at Christmas lights, it seemed a bit worse for wear so I decided to take it home.  The tag that had the species name was broken in half, leaving our only clue:
******/pe Cactus
******/reus
Here's some pictures:



I can tell right away that it desperately needs a deeper pot, but I live in Pennsylvania and we're supposed to get snow this week, so I'm not sure when I should do the re-potting.  It was in a some kind of hothouse area indoors at the store,  so I'll keep it in a warm room by a window.  Will that be ok for now, or should I think about making it go dormant over winter?  Any advice on keeping this thing healthy or links to general cactus guides for the cold winter/hot and humid summers we have in the Mid Atlantic would be greatly appreciated.  If I can get this thing to thrive that would be great, if you can at least help me at keep it alive and reasonably healthy, that's good too, I know the weather here is not ideal.  :grin:

Great, thanks.  I'm going to try to start some loph seedlings in the spring and this guy will provide a great cover story for my succulent garden.
