Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day Nov 2010

The yellow cactus is not a flower but it is definitely as beautiful as one.
The succulent on  the left is also not a flower but could be easily pass on as one too.


These grafted cactus is sometimes called Moon Cactus.
The top is a desert cactus.
The bottom is a jungle cactus.


The top relies on the bottom to supply food as it doesn't have any chlorophyll to make food.


Unlike other cactus, they should not be exposed to extreme sunlight.

  4. Oh dear...sadly I remember having one of these colorful cactus some years ago. Mine was red on top. Somehow, through neglect, it met its demise, and since then I've avoided growing cactus. I think they're beautiful, I just leave their care to those who are more skilled, with greener thumbs than mine!

  9. Donna, I did a search in your blog but couldn't locate moon cactus.

    Joyce, I like the 3rd one too. It is multi-coloured but those babies are not flowers.

    Fer, I guess you would have all those beautiful varieties that I may not have seen.

    Curbstone Valley Farm, Usually cactus require a lot of sunlight but not this one. Could yours have suffered because it was situated at a bright location which gave it a sunburn?

    Aaron, I used to have a tendency to water all my plants every day which cause cactus and succulents to rot. Now I group my plants according to their water requirement needs so that I don't make the same mistake.

    Hi Stephanie, Thanks. Glad you like that first photo. I usually put my favourite photo as the first one.

    Elaine, Thank you.

    Diana, Where am I? No frost, only cactus. :)

    Malar, Thanks. Glad you like them too.

  12. I didn't know that the moon is a bloom and the jungle is the life partner of the moon! No wonder none of the cactus plants I bought survived under my care :(

  13. Meredith, Good to see you back. Don't we all share energy stores too?

    Puteri, Glad you appreciate these colourful cactus too.

    Mac from Australia, I suppose these are available in Australia?

    Autumn Belle, Haha! The moon is only a bloom in Onenezz. I hope with this little information, your future cactus will thrive. Don't give up on cactus.

  16. Great photos One. We have a cactus native to Canada called the Prickly Pear Cactus. It is a fine looking specimen. I have never grown one, in fact they seem to be hard to find.

  18. Grafting cactus is something i wanted to do for a long time but i don't have cactus, so haven't done it yet. I think every horticulturist must know how to do most of the technologies done with plants. In this regard, i still fail. BTW, i just joined Blotanical, i dont know if it will really be fun or more blogging time spent.

    I also love AB's comment above. AB cactus is a plant which is very difficult to kill, so if you did you are a certified unique gardener.

  19. Grafted cactus are so odd and enjoyable! I'm nuts for succulents, your photos are great! The little green "guy" with plump fingers in your topmost photo is awfully cute, too!

  20. Hi One, I love the first photo of your cactus, taken from a low angle. They look so beautiful and tall, against the blue sky!
