The iconic giant cactus is still adding arms,still growing. Maybe 10 meters tall?

Wow - that's a monster, Stan. Any idea how old it is?

Its fuzzy,but once years ago I think Josh, I read the accession number and as best I can recall- it went to the mid 1950's. Its one of those they go by grown by seed or collected in the wild by. Sounds right for cool Berkeley compared to the ones you see at the Huntington that might be almost as large but younger.

I will even say the very first time I saw it- about 20 years ago,it didn't have the large pups.
