When the next door neighbors moved out in January I was given a small cactus. I am NOT a houseplant person so I threw it out on the storm porch in a south facing window. Haven't given it any attention at all.
Imagine my surprise to find 9 flowers and buds on it! Cute little white flowers. I have found a home for Bruno where he will be loved and appreciated by Garden of MU's partner.

I discovered long ago that a cactus justloves to be ignored. Too much attention and they will curl up and die, but none and they thrive. Daniel is very excited to get any new cactus. For some reason he likes thorny plants. :)
