    Default My Other Passion - cacti succulents

    Before I became captivated by orchids, cacti and succulents were my fave. Because of moving so many times, it became hard to find housing for so many plants.... While they haven't replaced the chids on the bench, they are growing in numbers and here are two that are just beginning to open....

    This little guy is low growing and the tiny leaflets on the flower spikes drop off and root within a few days and in no time you have another ... lots of other plants ...and they do drop everywhere...can't tell you how many I've had to uproot from the chids...

    This plant, which is naturally varigated, grew two flower spikes. One is almost completely white while the other is more like the parent plant. I'm trying to root both...I know the white will be near impossible...we'll see
