Thank goodness I didn't raise it from seed. That probably would've been way worse. My sister gave it to me as a birthday present so that's bad but at least it was a more recent present.I'm thinking of a friend of mine who worked at Huntington Gardens. Had one cacti he spent 30 years bringing it to maturity. Another cacti he spent over 10 years monitoring to get a photo of it on the one night that it bloomed.
One of my friends was making pretty good money shooting squirrels for $5 a tail before, lol. There's a lot of squirrels here.The words of the Emperor come to mind: "And you my young Jedi/squirrel, you will not survive!"
