It´s a nice plant anyway, a picture under white lights would be interesting to see just how red it naturally gets.

P.S I have some saguaros (supposedly) that I sow last autumn. Now they are about 5 mm high (if they are indeed saguaros for it was cacti mix that i bought)

Yes, a deserving win! An uncommon (impressive) specimen of a common plant!
