So I have this cactus that I got in like 6th grade, no joke. It was one of those kinds that you buy at Lowes with the red thing glued on top to make it fancy.
That was nearly 8 years ago, I'm in my second year of college and I just found this thing again in my family's basement. I guess somebody's been giving it a bit of water now and then, but what the fuck. How is this thing still living and how has it gotten so crazy? What can I do for this poor plant to make it nice and healthy again?
I dunno dude, I figured I might as well look after it since it's here. I mean I don't really have the urge to have a cactus anyway.
Besides, all the cacti at my local store are still those bullshit ones with the flower thing glued to the top. Those and these ones that are like spray painted blue and purple. It's tacky and gross.
If I saw a nice little normal cactus somewhere I'd buy it.
I know, right? Why don't all sixth graders buy from RESPONSIBLE cactus breeders? This is an outrage, OP, I can't believe you would support cactus mills
Stop bitching about irrelevant shit. OP just wanted a cactus, not a show line champion cactus. It's a fucking cactus.
I haven't seen this before.
it looks like a scene out of American McGee's Alice.
>Incredibly poor choice as a garden plant
With the idea I have in mind for a garden, everything is going to be a poor choice. But I like challenges and I like making weird shit that most people dislike at best, at hate at worst.
Bugguy is a queer. Get it and let it grow pretty pink flowers.
You can take branches and plant them they will live no worries. ill send you a pic. And you got roots because it was in a wet place.
By the way, i had too much cactus so i threw them out and i realise couples months later that they never die.
thats a dragon fruit cactus, anon, and they get pretty damned big when they are allowed to.
you need more than one to pollenate the flowers and produce the fruit (like most cacti)
they're hard to tell just which kind they are without the flower and the stems can be very amorphic even within its own species
