Do Not Plant Your Cactuses In The Garden

Some years ago I become a Lover Of The Cactuses. I bought many very little cactuses and planted them in the little vases. You can look at some of them in my old post Flowers-of-cactuses.
But the cactuses did not understand my great love and did not want to grow so as I wanted they grow. Later I understood that the cactus wants to have very deep vase bacause it makes very great roots. And I made a very grave error to plant them in the soil.

Yes, the cactuses appreciated what I did. But when I want to clean them from the weeds I have to become invalid. All my hands are cut and full of needles.

Here I wanted to show you some photos from the show we visited in spring.

And these are MY cactuses that are flowering today. To make this first photo I had to clean the weeds (I was too busy with the "vacation" I wrote in my previous posts) and my hands are really terrible now. But this cactus in the soil from 2-3 cm large bacame... about 30 cm in diameter!

This second is the new sort of cactuses. Brown cactus. I found it in the show a year ago. Sincerely I did not thought to see it flower. But the flower is really very interesting. It is like veil. By the way, it opens only after 13:00, when the sun comes in the place where it grows.

  1. Где ты видела, что в пустыне их кто-то чистит и приводит в порядок?

  2. Ну рассмешила!!! Так в пустыне же и травой, наверное, не зарастает. Ой, если бы ты видела, на что похожи мои руки. Полдня иголки вытаскивала, так и не вытащила. Да порезы тоже жуткие. Ух...

  3. Вот, не будешь больше чистить. А розы в этом отношении может быть чуть-чуть лучше.

  4. Ты прямо как мой муж. Он мне на всё так говорит.
    Да тут после дождей повсюду такие заросли, что скоро и в дом не пройдёшь.

  5. We can buy different types of cactuses here too. Once, I bought a few and they died. I am never good with plants!
