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?
