Unknown Cactus


2 meter (at that time) tall cactus with large pads very short spines and red flowers.


No idea. It is not native to the area. It was brought in by the village resident.


The locals are fond of bringing in plants that they see in other centers or when they are outside (of the jungle). This appears to be one such instance, although it appears to be growing quite well.
