Thank you so much skopjecollection! I really want this little guy to make it. Will do some research now.

I think the plant is an original Chamaecereus silvestrii from which all these hybrids have been grown
It looks as though it's been in the same pot for many years and hardly watered and that's why the peanuts are so small
If it was taken out of the pot it would break up into tiny peanuts I think
More water would plump it up to larger peanuts but as we all know cacti thrive and flower on neglect

For the curious, here's what that big clump looked like when I broke it apart and potted up the pieces. The soil was all organic. I replaced most of it with my usual mix of half pumice.

But the roots were retreating. The old soil looks like dry sawdust. I saw that exact soil in my Hoya plant when I thought I should report it after 40 years in the same soil - crusty sawdust. I think you got to it just in time Baja.
