Dancing Around the Cactus

I am literally dancing around my cacti these days. All six of the varieties that I have at home are doing superb.

Notice the new plant emerging from the edge of the old ones? Soon it will grow and produce more baby cacti.

Grafted one is also doing great. I have separated a baby plant from it and planted it in a new container. Its an experiment. I am not sure if babies of grafted cacti can be grown like that.

My little duck container is now filled with the cactus I planted few months back. It was just a one inched piece from a cactus and look at it now!

This one is the 3rd generation of my old cactus. I think its one of the ferocacti. I have gifted many baby cacti of the same plant to friends and kept 4 for myself.

I dont understand why people dont appreciate cacti that dont ask you for much!

Appreciate nature--- grow a cactus!

Happy Gardening!
