a potted cactus by my fren.

in the Road trip to cameron, my fren bought me a pot of cactus. Small but SOO cute!!! hahaha...
every inch of it has spine (sharp, small and directed in all direction). As if it is telling me that although i am small but dun u dare to come near and piss me off cause you will get hurt in the end. hahahaha.... cool little cactus.

I read through some website about how am i going to take care of it. Some interesting part i found it like: cactus can get sunburn too like human. Enough light, cactus can grows well and flower, but not exposing to burning and bright light. HAHAHA...

Watering. Potted cactus required more water than outdoor cactus but depends on moisture of environment. It needs not to be over watering, just moist will do. And, water needs to be a little lower in pH. Now what you can do is to put an open container of water from tap and leave it for days before watering. Dun use cold water and dun water it from top of plant. Soft, lime-poor rainwater is best.

Remember that healthy, unpampered cacti plants are the least prone to diseases and pests.
