We were talking about my lad's sudden interest in Cacti and he came out with "I liked cacti when I was younger too. Mom bought me some too."
It was neat. A simple thing like buying cacti and I learn more about my favourite fellow neat huh!?!?! :)
When my lad was out with gramma getting more cacti, I'm told he asked a lot of questions of the nursery people. Learning how often to water them, how they grow and divide and how big they might get. Mom was quite impressed with him, and the nursery staff were quite pleased (so I am told). :)
What did they tell him?
- keep them in sun
- water them once every two weeks
- keep them in sandier soil
and "I don't remember the rest mom". :) Nine year olds eh?
