  1. Brings back nice memories of my mom and her cacti – she had two long dish gardens on the kitchen windowsill back in the day. They got lots of sun and thrived, then one died and I brought home a new “old man cactus” which she segregated for a while in another room, but it had mites and transmitted it to the others and she lost that garden. I felt so badly.

    • Cacti seem like hardy plants that can’t go wrong, but they do die. I was surprised when our succulents started dying. Maybe it was over or under watering. But they do get sick too.
      I’m sure your mom appreciated your gesture and loved the cactus! You and your mom were very close Nice motherly/ daughter bond!

      • Yes, you can’t overwater them and she had the perfect place for them, a sunny kitchen windowsill. Yes, my mom and I were very close – she’s been gone 10 years this past January.

      • I actually killed succulents last summer. It was disheartening, because I read that they are difficult to kill. lol. Oh well.
        Moms are special beings! It’s great that you had a close relationship with her, which probably makes you miss her more.
