Impossible right? You can’t kill a cactus…
They require virtually NO maintenance, you hardly have to water them… they are a breeze!
Well, for me it wasn’t that simple.
This cactus serves as the first living plant in my new home and now I am killing it! AHHH, sorry Debbie, please forgive me!
The reason this is all so traumatic is because this cactus was a special gift to me!
I was given this adorable little potted plant by my dear friends Debbie and Lilly when I took my California trip back in October.
And since then, this cactus has been with me through it all.
So when I noticed it started looking a little brown, I panicked and thought watering it every day for seven days straight would perk it right back up!
But then, it started browning even more and I didn’t know what to do! This succulent couldn’t die! We’d been across the country together!
I would plead with it before I went to work every day, “please… please don’t die on me!”
I was desperate, so I recruited help from a woman who obviously knows more than me.
Thankfully, my Tyler mom reassured me that if I stop watering it obsessively, it would be okay.
She was right…
The cactus is getting better and losing more of its brown stems. And I am regaining hope that I didn’t do the impossible and kill a freaking cactus!
Glad this baby is as tough as I needed it to be!
I’d say after all this… it deserves a new pot.
More to come for my Cali Cactus.
