Happy Cactus Monday!

Or rather "Sad Cactus Monday!" I have been trying to get back into the swing of Cactus Monday, but my cactus are a little cactus. How can I be inspired by these poor dying things? They have not enjoyed the move to the cold and windy southern highlands. Perhaps I need to bring them indoors?

This is exactly why I don't have plants. Mine die. I have some at work that are living well....when I remember to water them.

My goodness, Messy...only the graftd top of your mooon cactus died! The others just look like they need a little love! Keep them in the sunshine for sure! I think they will look better in no time!

Do you keep it in direct sun? they only like morning sun, also the soil is important to have sand and pebbles in it for fast drainage.

Happy Cactus Monday!

I feel as though your cactus' are a bit in shock, but some look like they are thriving. So happy you are back and getting settled.
My best wishes to you and Baby Fish's recovery.
A big hug to you - HCM!!!

Everything I bring inside dies- I moved my houseplants outside one by one! :)

thanks Lisa, thanks dee. I think I might be the same as you dee, an indoor plant is a dead -plant!

With all this great advice, you will surely have success. Show us the cacti again in a few weeks so we can see how they are doing.

My cacti thrive on neglect. :)

HCM!!

Lisa at Greenbow said...

Your cactus look a lot like mine when I bring them inside for the winter. Not enough light. HCM anyway.

Happy Cactus Monday, Messyfish! Just like you, your cacti are just getting used to their new surroundings. They look fine. :)

Messy fish, please don't be discourage.
I only have a few pots....a few cactus too. I have no quality time for gardening, so just take care a few only!
I will write to you on facebook later.
Sorry for the delay. You are a brilliant person that I want to be friend. Sorry to drop by late.
Look like, I am late at other areas too. Too tire lately!
Happy Cactus Monday!
