Apple cactus

I’m so happy that I found a place that sells apple cactus’s. I lost mine last winter and I didn’t think that I would ever find another one. As the one I had was given to me. I hop that I can see it bloom. Thank you so much for making it possible for me to get another one. The one below is the one I lost 🥺
