I have always loved cactus. They are majestic in their prickly way, and years ago I was living in a house with the right kind of light that mine flourished even bloomed. Unfortunately, life happened and I moved to an apartment with hardly any light so my cactus collection was eventually given away before they all died on me. *sigh*
A few months ago I decided to give succulents a try once again. Different location, a little better light — and I discovered grow lights! I’ve slowly been gathering up some beauties through a monthly subscription and a few sales along the way. I’ve been surfing through YouTube for “how-to” videos and found a gardener that I really enjoy watching as she creates beautiful succulent and sometimes cactus arrangements. I’m about to try my hand at this myself, so we’ll see how that turns out.
Now, my small collections aren’t as big or as colorful as this picture… but I am going to put them in rather close to each other to see how they look and if they thrive in that type of planting. Guess I’m going to have to learn the camera on my phone to show my own progress, right? *mutters* 🙂
