Growing local

I always hope for some fruiting. It's on my bucket list.
But these wonderful cactii can reach 10 metres -- so you need to control their growth habit.
Since I have a few planted out I'm always watching what the branches get up to.
Unlike other succulents I've worked with, when you cut a thick branch of one of these they can be used as mulch without much chance of rooting -- as Prickly Pears will do so quickly.
But the nightime flowering -- and into late morning -- is very generous.
Bees love em.
So easy to grow.
Unlike the image, the trunks grow vertically.
