This is a Stenocereus griseus that I got almost a year ago as a cutting from a friend. I remember going to pick it up, because I went completely unprepared. When I got out of the car I thought to myself, I didn't bring anything to grab this. So needless to say I got poked, a lot, and I accidentally dropped it twice on my way to the car. So now I carry everything I might need to get a cutting or dig something up. FYI: my friend wasn't home for help . . . .
