Perfect for X! ;)

I have a cactus which is growing out of control. It must be because I forget to water my plants and then once in a blue moon I drown them, recreating the conditions cacti like! LOL!

I've seen these - now I know their name - thanks.

Excellent choice for the letter X! These cacti won't grow where I live--much too cold--but I find them intriguing. Thanks for sharing!
