I think I've given home to Audrey III

I have a cactus which I believe to be an ostropuntia subulata monstrose (pic of one that looks just like mine). It didn't grow for years, and now it's growing astonishingly quickly. Why? And what can I do to help it along? Any tips? [more inside]

What are and how do I obtain miniature cacti?

Are miniature cacti just younger plants or do they have their own name or classification? Awhile ago I saw some tiny (~1 in. apiece) cacti for sale in a big box garden/home supply store, but am not having luck finding them online (getting a lot of hits for dollhouse miniatures, etc). I would like to buy some but know neither the right terminology to use, nor where I'd buy them. I've already browsed several online cacti stores w/o success. Thanks for your help tracking this down!
