It's my lucky day!!! When I moved here from KS 10 yrs ago I brought with me a pencil cactus
I had for years.. It was 7'tall and 3 foot wide.. I had to lop the top off to get in the movers truck.. after my second year of being here I lost the entire plant
. It just never adjusted to the heat and My apartment at the time was too small to hold it,, sooooooo I'd been on a hunt for one since,, Oh I found them alright but they were priced rediculously high$
,, I just couldn't do it at time I'd found one,, But TODAY was a different story. I not only found a pencil cactus
But as a bonus it was only $3.50 AND.., it is the firestick pencil cactus
Here's hoping I can grow another 7 footer!!
Well at least I have room to bring in the house if I have too!
Here's my new baby...
On this pic you can see where some of the limbs are beginning to turn reddish
And this is the green coral cactus
;it really resembles undersea coral pretty coooool!
