Wow you are good! Thanks so much!
Here is a picture of some cactus I bought at the nursery. It’s labeled as “Penis Cactus” but it doesn’t look any of the pictures I found online!
Enjoy your day!
My google search for “Penis Cactus” pulled up this page:
And there you go!
I see the Stetsonia corynes are ready to be potted up, but we like to wait for spring before we subject cactus to the vagaries of the transplant process since they’re dormant in winter. On the other hand it’s a very very very dry winter right now and after 4 years of drought it doesn’t really matter. Pot ‘em up! But soon, one year, anytime now, soon enough, we will be out of this drought and then there will be another wet winter and we will have to relearn how to be careful with the potting of the cactus in the winter months again.

Are you a fan of the cactus? Then you are so fashionable right now that you are practically dripping in irony.
The tough, drought-tolerant cactus and its close relation the succulent (the fleshy-leaved, geometric-shaped rockery plant, also known as house leeks or sempervivum), are ”trending” right now.
Expensive clothes, expensive stool, expensive cactus – so why is the pot cheap plastic? You couldn’t spring for terra cotta?
The Hilltop Steakhouse sign is “one of the few remaining landmarks on Route 1 in Saugus from the bygone era.”
The plastic cows may be forever gone from Route 1, but the giant, green neon north star in Saugus is going nowhere fast.
A sign from my youth. And it’s still there? Who knew!?! Classic.
It’s my latest of an annual roundup of cactus costumes just in time for Halloween. Not in time for you to get any of these copied or bought to use yourself, though. It’s too late for that.
It’s a Cactus costume that doubles as a fancy top hat for the rest of the year. Nice!

And the clear winner is this one. It looks like it took a lot of work. No slipping a plastic costume on here.
Yesterday I posted a YouTube video of an Electric Cactus and promised that it would be very exciting and amazing, and then I clicked the video and it was no such thing. It was kind of dull. Well today I revisit the concept of the electric cactus.

Did you ever wonder what an electronically amplified cactus sounded like? Now you can find out. All you have to do is click the play button on the YouTube video below and prepare to be amazed.
OK, so maybe that wasn’t so amazing.
