    Thank you good people

    How about an Orangery Droopy? :D

    Thought it best to render this little bit of wall before putting any plants in :rolleyes:

    I must be ready for the holidays! That one reminds me of one of my old aunties lining up to give me a smooch!

    Many people prefer keeping cactus as a houseplant because they are low-maintenance and easy to care for. As long as you provide it with sufficient light, air, water, drainage, and nutrients, your cactus will not only survive but also thrive. On the other hand, there are suggestions that these plants can transmit bad energy at home. It is believed that the prickly and sharp thorns on the leaves carry the bad energy in them.
