Hiya people, so sick of this dish crap whatever it is. Thought I'd relate a tale about my bike riding cactus. I recently lopped a few offshoots off a small unidentified cactus of mine and was checking it's progress when my 20month old daughter decided she'd like to hold it as a pet so being it was a species which isn't too prickly and hadn't yet rooted anyway I let her. She was thrilled and after making friends with it she carried it about for a while and put it on her bike's seat so she could push it around like a little buddy. It was quite a good bike rider and after she went to bed I repotted it with some other young pups. She does love her cacti and it's lovely to have someone to share the joy of my collection with. Sorry to bore you all but I'm sick of this dish thing and it was adorable. Anyone with some stories about what their plants get up to which may not be usual cactus behaviour I'd love to hear it.

Great story i can relate to that as my 3 year old son is obsessed with plants especially lithops he has his favorites and carries them everywhere. Very Happy

Love the way they acknowledge that they are a living things to be treated with care. They certainly do get attached to specific plants. I still think she was part to thank for the recovery of a near dead plant I was given, she took to watering it and carrying it about and was almost possessive of it. Great gift to impart a love of gardening/plants.
Glad to hear there's still life out there, been a bit quiet lately.
