This is the first time I ever had a cactus that flowered. This little stalk thing was growing out of no where, and this is what it turned into. I feel so proud to have a cactus that bloomed, I didnt know they could.
This log planter is in my bathroom, which gets full sun from sunrise till 1pm, where it goes around. I call this my magic log, nothing ever dies in this log. I had originally planted many small cactus in it, never thinking they would grow, boy was I in for a surprise.....

That's actually a succulent (aloe species) not a cactus. Very nice looking and e-z to grow. Don't overwater it.

^,
I had no idea what it really was, there was a storefront here in the city that had all these little cactus things, so i bought a bunch, never thinking......


i water once a week, as the soil dries out pretty fast, but its always better to underwater than to over water, so i think....

They have to live a while and be in a location they like to bloom, so congratulations. Some I had for years before I found out they flowered, but I think most of them do. If those flowers pollinate, they can start to grow a baby right on that stalk. You can put it on the dirt in another pot, still attached to the mother plant, and it'll root. Then you cut the cord and start over.
