My mom found this beautiful Euphorbia horrida hybrid in a nursery a couple of years ago. She has a history of killing even the toughest plants (mostly underwatering), but her small cactus collection thrives. Possibly even more than my own succulents.
I found that overthinking everything about a plant’s needs isn’t necessarily a good thing. You don’t always need expensive pots and soil mixes, gadgets, fertilizers and calendars to keep a cactus alive. Just give it lots of light + very little water and it will be happy!
Come a little bit closer ..
My Gymnocalycium mihanovichii has been flowering all week. I finally came home early enough to see the them before they close up for the night.
They really brighten up the place! 🌸
These are the Sempervivum and Sedum Album I bought last spring. They’re flourishing 🌸
Went outside to check on my Sempervivums after several days of heavy rainstorms and this is what I saw. The first of many flower buds has opened!
