I got such a huge surprise today after work! At least, I should say it was a big surprise TO ME, anyway!!! I had a moon cactus like the one below (except it was hot pink on top)...and the top rotted off...strange, but true. That left the euphorbia stalk that it had been transplanted onto still there...so I took the pot and stuck it down on the bottom shelf where I put all my dead or half dead plants (ones that I've given up hope on)!
Well, today I was emptying some of the pots, to clean up for other plants, but when I pulled out the stalk of euphorbia, look at what was growing out the side! A new CACTUS (or could it be something other than cactus???)! It has very fine white spines...what do you make of it? Any ideas on what kind of cactus it is??? I must go out on the web and see if I can find any pics of one like it!!! I was so excited to see that a new life (completely new) came from this...WOW!
I have a mammallaria, a haworthia limifolia, and an aloe in bloom right now. It's spring in the succulent world too!!!
