What to do with the Dyckia x 'Spider Witch'?

Windsor, CA(Zone 9b)

It is getting so big that I had to move 1 plant and now possibly others. Does it stop growing or keep growing? I am afraid to touch it in order to move it as it has vicious spines on the leave edges. The first pic is today, the second was a newly purchased baby taken on 9.30.2009 and the third pic was taken on 07.04.2010. Quandry. Thanks, Xuling

Wow on the first pix. I'll offer to help. Get out a long handled shovel and dig up the whole thing, drop it into a box and mail it to me. I can even pay postage. On a more serious note - I only have 2 Dyckias so far. The spines do scare me away a bit. I'm waiting to see how they "grow" on me. So many different varieties out there!
