Here's to all the global warming pushers, may your winters be -30 below and four feet of snow in your driveway. Because I want you happy.

Thanks!


When I uncovered the cacti I immediately noticed the Tricho
had made a big jump already(I guess it enjoyed the 120F in there
before I got home)this looks like a big year for it...just about doubled
in size over the last(almost)2 years.. 8)

That is a prob for sure as the c- garden requires some "thinning" from time to time :wink:

This thing has grown 4" so far and its not even close to summer...
these suckers gotta be the poplar of the cactus world!
