Succulents – My new found love!

Recently, I’m more interested in growing succulents in our garden. They are very easy to grow and maintain. I’ve had no problems till now.

This post is about the cacti we grow at home. (Almost all cacti are succulents)

The three cacti in white containers are from IKEA. We bought it last summer. It grew well until winter. I hope it will start growing again now that its spring.

The other cactus is called a moon cactus. It’s a grafted cactus. The upper cactus lacks chlorophyll and thus red in color. As it cannot survive on it’s own, its grafted on a green cactus. We bought it at a local garden center.

And that’s a pair of Shisa from Okinawa :). Shisa are cross between a lion and a dog from Okinawan Mythology. The left Shisa has it’s mouth closed and the right has it’s mouth open.
