I’m really impressed with the ones who have interest in planting or having pets. It all just seems they all have great effort to take care of ‘em, which seems impossible to me.
It could never be easier as in my experience when my brother got the Pekingnese hybrid dog, it’s only me who’s afraid of it, The same thing happens for plant, really has no interest at all, until I moved to this dormitory with a balcony incl. I then feel that I need some “ornament”, i mean sort of plants. But hey wait..!
Pigeons here really fond of playing around the balcony. oh my!
The plan was just plan as I didn’t buy the rose that attracted me for hundred times…
Mimi : “You can have this plant.. Plants in the room iz goodd.. They can create such a happiness to you..”
Me : “But I dun think they’ll be good under me as the care-taker, haha..”
Mimi : “That’s okay, they dont need that much watering.. If you later find ‘em annoying, you can give to others or throw ‘em away.. ”
Me : “Ok then..”
Mimi : “Let me shower ‘em 1st before giving ‘em to you.. ”
Me : “Alrite.. :)”
Mimi : “These cactus as well.. if u’re interested, as u know they need less care as well..”
Me thought the cactus’re cuteee, so just nodded accepting the cactus..
Those pieces of conversation was about 1.5 months ago when Mimi, a French friend of mine was about to move out. I was the one of the box keeper’s friend. She’s terribly hectic time dealing with her PhD entrance test, travelling to Hiroshima, going back to France while she hadn’t found new apato.
Helping her distributing her stuffs, and my deposit parts’re : violin, bag of Jap tea set and sort of, plus TV.
I really love the mini cute cactus and I put the yellow handcraft duck given by Ci La.. I proudly told my friend who’s turtles, that I also got sth to take care of now.. LOL.. He’s just saying that I’ve to take care of them extra in the winter. Please make sure they survive and show me they’re healthy when I visit you..
Ahh, yup it’s getting colder now, and I noticed my cactus’s not that healthy.. wheww.. I mean thhe colour’s bit change to pale yellow.. dou shi yo kana… I know cactus is pretty hardy and need not much attention, but now I need to be knowledgeable enough to help em survive thru the upcoming winter months.
What I read, they should not be watered for more than once every 4-6 weeks. The watering time also give impact to ‘em.. It has sth to do with the warmth degree of the day, preventing icy cold water that’ll shock the root. Additional tips is that putting the styrofoam cups to cover the entire cactus, or maybe decorating ‘em with small christmas lights and let the light keep showering them throughout the night.
Anybody has experience on cactus? I want ‘em to stay healthy until the next spring, they’re still blooming along with the appearance of sakura.. *wink wink*
The cactus is put somewhere near the study desk.
