Last fall I wrote about my two cactus plants.
This September we decided to transplant my mother's cactus. It just didn't look like a healthy plant to me anymore. The transplant didn't help, so I threw it out. I looked it up and saw that the lifespan is 20-30 years. I gave it to my mother in 1972, so it has already beat the odds.
The "anything but fuchsia" is still going strong, and here it is today.
