Tiny Giant Peanut

The common name of this cactus is Giant Peanut, according to the sticker on the pot, but right now it's really only the size of a regular peanut. (The flower it produced, however, was giant.) This one was born in Arizona, but has now relocated to San Jose after making its debut at the San Francisco Garden Show. I'm hoping it will accept the fact that it isn't likely to be 114 degrees here very often. I know I do.
