Night Blooming Cactus

This was only $4.99 or there abouts at the local garden store so I brought it, seems like so much plant for the money. Planted in May 2011.

It was in such an amazingly small pot and very top heavy, its a wonder it doesnt fall over.

This is growing quite well from the base.

Night Blooming Cactus December 2012

Its definatley still alive but it looks a bit yellow like it might have too much water? Or the soil is too moist?

It was a difficult decision knowing where to plant this, so its on the edge of the hotest most exposed part of the garden. This area seems to get sunshine all day as it currently has no natural shade.

Im hoping that it doesnt attract too much attention from the local kids what with it being a cactus and all.

August 2011

Not sure what to make of this but it looks ok. Its still there AND its put out two little growths at its base.
