Stuff Around The House #11 - More Cactus




This is a little plant we keep in a shallow tray - one of those things you put under a terra cotta pot to catch water that flows thru when you water a plant. The only name I know it by is "mouse ear" cactus, and I don't know anything else about it. We bought it at a community flea market in Drexel, NC last year. We moved it inside when it began to get cooler, and set it near a sunny window, and suddenly this week it decided to bloom.

Our Christmas cactus is still blooming btw.

I looked up "Mouse Ear Cactus", but cannot find anything called that. So, just call it a baby "barrel" cactus. It looks pretty anyway and is so easy to take care of, b..ch.
