Learning Something New – Growing Cactus Plants Indoors

Learning Something New – Growing Cactus Plants Indoors
Cacti are beautiful plants. You’ll find them in all sorts of shapes and sizes, and colors too. These prickly delights make exceptional houseplants for their ease of care, and are often great for anyone starting out. This even includes me, the succulent killer! Exploring the World of Cactus Houseplants I never gave much thought to growing cactus plants until learning how much my grandfather enjoyed caring for them, and boy could he. He had some of the most amazing specimens! I swear that man could grow anything. As succulents, these plants can handle lots of neglect. The downside for me in learning to grow cacti is the fact that I seem to always kill succulent plants, not from neglect but mostly due to overwatering. Would I do the same with these too? You never know until you try though, right. So I bought a few little cacti of varying … Read More

No Outdoor Or Indoor Cactus Plants Growing Here

No Outdoor Or Indoor Cactus Plants Growing Here
Cacti are fascinating plants. I love to look at them, read about them and tour through wild cactus forests. But after seeing their magnificence in the wild, I have never felt the desire to buy a small indoor cactus for the house, and none of my climates are very conducive to cactus growth anyway. Saguaro National Park – All the Cactus Plants I Need The first time I drove from San Francisco to Mexico, I passed through saguaro territory. This extends from mid-Arizona down into northern Mexico, an area called the Saguaro Desert,  and if you haven’t visited, put it on your list. Camping in the middle of saguaros is the experience of a lifetime, punctuated by the howl of the coyotes somewhere out of sight. Like the redwoods, saguaros have a deep wisdom and a majesty that always moves me deeply, making me want to be a better … Read More

Gardening With Dementia

Gardening With Dementia
Furnishing Gardening Volunteers of South Texas is a non-profit, 501(c)three organization, founded in 2002. Another excuse for the pattern back to open kitchens (and a basis of the “kitchen object” philosophy) is changes in how food is prepared. Whereas previous to the Fifties most cooking started out with raw components and a meal needed to be prepared from scratch, the arrival of frozen meals and pre-prepared convenience meals modified the cooking habits of many individuals, who consequently used the kitchen less and fewer. For others, who adopted the “cooking as a social act” development, the open kitchen had the benefit that they might be with their friends while cooking, and for the “creative cooks” it would even turn out to be a stage for his or her cooking performance. Neighborhood gardening includes all kinds of approaches to sharing land and gardens. For some nice gardening tips, simply start up a... Read More

Do You Grow Cacti: Prickly Love

Do You Grow Cacti: Prickly Love
I have always had indoor cactus, even in college when I was a kid. At that time, it was one of those grafted varieties with a bright pink top and grayish green base. I now know this was likely a moon cactus, but at the time my knowledge was all devoted to things like literature, theology, and philosophy. I worked and went to school full time and didn’t have time to devote to learning about plants. Boy, has that all changed. My first little cactus seemed to thrive in my rather dim dorm room. Interestingly it is a manmade attempt to recreate a natural phenomenon. In the wild such colorful cacti are mutants and eventually the bright top will fall off the base host. It will quickly die as the colored part lacks chlorophyll, essential for photosynthesis and plant survival. That is why the base or rootstock of … Read More

It’s Not Easy Growing Cacti Indoors

It’s Not Easy Growing Cacti Indoors
After ten years of gardening, I have tried growing quite an array of plants. From succulents to giant sunflowers, I am continuously drawn to unique and interesting plants. After having some success growing cacti from seed one season, I decided I would try my hand at overwintering them indoors. Ultimately, my prolonged struggle to help the plants thrive in their windowsill has led me to consider whether or not I would ever try growing cacti indoors again. My Struggle with Indoor Cactus Here in my Kentucky garden, cacti aren’t exactly a common sight. Of course, there are some varieties of cacti that are hardy to my growing zone. However, many types of cactus struggle due to our consistently wet summers, poorly draining soil, and cold winter temperatures. Even so, I could not be deterred when I found a small packet of cactus seeds available through one of my favorite … Read More

Crown Of Thorns Cactus – A Thorny Houseplant That’s Really A Succulent

Crown Of Thorns Cactus – A Thorny Houseplant That’s Really A Succulent
When I was a kid, I got one of those little barrel cactus plants from the grocery store that costs a dollar or two. I thought it was so cute but quickly lost interest. Apparently, I thought a cactus didn’t need any water at all, and it died. As I got older and learned more, I bought and grew a thriving crown of thorns, one of my favorite succulents that is not quite a cactus.  Crown of Thorns Houseplant After killing that little grocery store cactus, I lost interest in plants for a while. I never really got into cactus growing again either. But one day at the garden center, I looked through the cactus area and found a beautiful, thorny houseplant with cheery, delicate flowers. I loved it.  The crown of thorns cactus I bought that day is Euphorbia milli, and it and other Euphorbia plants were tucked … Read More
