Splurged today and created some cactus and succulent arrangements with new plants and ones I already had. Check out some of the incredible spikiness of some of these guys! The cacti with fuzzy spots are actually far more hazardous than ones with needle-like spikes. The fuzzy spots usually contain glochids that are really fine and tiny, with little barbed ends that get lodged in skin so easily and take some work to get out! Even with wearing my gardening gloves, I got them on me, and whatever ones I can't get out will be painful for a week 😭😭😭 I suppose I should get some really heavy gloves, but then it's so hard to feel what I'm doing.
I used a bunch of unidentified cacti, two snake plants, small ponytail palms, string of pearls, wavy jade, senecio crassissimus, elephant bush, rhipsalis, aloes, and a gasteria. I really enjoyed putting these together!
I'm so looking forward to being able to put my succulents outside again for the summer. They've done well enough with grow lights this winter, but I can't wait to see how they look after a season in the sun.
