      Cacti are beautiful flowering plants although I guess not often seen in all their beauty. A friend of mine grew them in a greenhouse and they were superb. :) An expert too. Apparently some are fragrant
      As a child my old mum used to grow and sell them too; in my ignorance I decided to repot one and tipped a large cactus into my hand. The pain! All those sharp pins. Forever pulling the barbs out of my hand...not pleasant :sad: Put me off growing them :noidea:

        I had some that flowered years back @Verdun but I had an uncontrollable pup then who thought nothing of throwing them about :sad: and never had any since.

        It's funny you saying they carry fragrance..while we was by them yesterday we smelt a lovely perfume smell but could we find where it was coming from :scratch: and now I know :dbgrtmb:

        Well you've just said your experience with them :yikes:...while my hubby was taking the pic's, he touched one and before I could say be careful...bl__dy hell came out of his mouth :roflol:

          Collecting cacti and succulents is addictive. I have thousands of them !

            I'm glad i'm not like that but my other half is but it's still a shame regarding your collection, especially when your working with them a great deal...I do hope things sort themselves for you :)
