I have one cactus plant. It used to be my son’s. I saved it when he moved out, about eight years ago. I popped it into my Pony Tail plant pot and basically ignored it! It has refused to die.
It is not a particularly attractive cactus – all spines and hard to work around, but it wasn’t dead so I kept it. It does have beautiful flowers – something I didn’t know to begin with.
It has only bloomed once before, about two or three years ago. Right now it is blooming again and not just one flower – it has multiple buds and multiple blooms! It has been blooming for about 3 weeks with more buds to open!
