Other: It is one of the most beautiful cactus species in my opinion, having a dark green, firm, almost lizard-skin textured 'skin', nice angularity to it's overall spherical shape and linear arrays of black spines down it's sides on a white fluffy background. It's a striking cactus and most people seem to notice it before all others in the garden.
