Flowering Houseplant Cactus
A couple of weeks ago I noticed some fuzzy balls on one of my cacti. I tried to remove one, thinking it was a ball of fluff stuck in the spikes, but to my surprise it was attached! How strange. I hoped my poor cactus didn’t have a disease (I’d destroyed two before by watering too much, oops). I had been careful this time to not disturb my cacti too much and just water once per month. Then to my surprise a green shoot popped out and within days a brilliant pink flower appeared out of nowhere!
My first cactus flower! Yay! I’ve heard cacti can flower once a year if kept in the right conditions. I never thought mine would, so it has me quite excited. The flower is pretty amazing too, really unusual and very cool. I keep peeking at it constantly. I have my fingers tightly crossed for my others to flower now.
