g'day folks,been quite a while since I logged on (but I have been keeping an eye on the site). the reason being we have moved to my sons block & I decided to try & be totally self sufficient in vegies & fruit, so the cacti took a backseat.
after two seasons of disasters re the vegies & fruit we discovered that we had been watering with salt water from the bore.
now you may be asking what this has to do with cactus & succulents; well it's like this, all the cactus & succulents have been watered with the same water & have survived & in some cases have positively thrived.
question is, why, surely the should have died too.
the good point is I can now concentrate on them & to hell with the vegies.
