The Great Cactus Growing Race

Watching paint dry?  Watching ice melt?  What could be more exciting than cactus growing?

Five species of the cactus family were planted early this morning, April 14, 2015: (1) a variety mix of dragon fruit, (2) a common sort of red-skinned, white-fleshed dragon fruit, (3) a strawberry hedgehog cactus, (4) Xoconostle, a trendy, sour sort of cactus pear, and (5) Ficus-indica, the most common type of sweet cactus pear.  There’s more detail about each here.  Which will grow the quickest?  Can’t you just taste the excitement?
