Seed Swaps

Yubaba (cactus)

Another homeless plant that found its way to me. Found it potless and thrown aside on the ground near my house, took it home and potted it. It hasn’t had any new growth since then but it has taken root and looks happy. For some reason my boyfriend named it after the witch from Spirited Away. Covered in fine white spines all over, slightly crooked and fatter at the top than bottom, turning pink at the top (hopefully some flowers soon!).

This planting is in the patio garden .

I’m sure this comes as no surprise, but it’s for sure a cactus. And if it is indeed a cactus, and it hasn’t shown new growth but looks healthy and happy, it’s growing as it should.

Tralamander seems like they know what they’re talking about^^^^
