Greenish Thumb

This is the extent of my green thumb. I don't actually have much of a green thumb. It's really more yellow. Or brown. But this cactus is a trouper, and it has survived even my most brutal punishment. My aunt gave me this cactus in a 2"x2" square plastic container when I moved to Kennesaw last year. At the time it was about 6" tall. I proceeded to place it on the railing of my balcony (on the third floor), and let the wind blow it off to what I thought was it's untimely death. When I realized it was missing, I went to my neighbors below, and they had rescued it from me, or so it though. They had repotted it in a 6" round plastic pot that was pretty much on it's last leg--all broken and cracked. Mr. Cactus went back up on the balcony--on the floor this time. Then I found this lovely coffee-cut pot, seen above. It is about 12" wide. I repotted the cactus in this pot with some yummy potting soil and stuck in some of those Miracle-Gro spikes. It has since grown to what you see above. It's about 2 feet tall. Yeah, my cactus is the shit.

  2. Yeah, that was the body I needed moving... LOL
