ok absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!! I love cacti! they are gorgeous and oh, so hearty! I can't kill them as I can, so easily, other plants! HA!
I have a golden barrel cactus, la cholla, prickly pear and various other's. I have about 12. I never really thought of them as being a collection but I guess they are!!
LOVELY COLLECTION!!

What a great collection! And I do not know how you do it. I had three cacti in my studio, where I was planning to paint them in a still-life set-up. These things take time and after a few months, when I was ready to start I realized that two of the three were dead! I felt so bad, killing the poor wee cacti. I think my mistake was over=watering plus my studio is cool and dark, probably the exact opposite of what they needed. Yours are so healthy and beautiful.

Thank you Laura :-)
Overwatering seems to be the no-no for cactuses. I only water mine every 15 days and thay get loads of sunshine.
Thank you girls your are the nicest :-)

i saw this beautiful miniture greenhouse at ikea once, made specifically for a collection of tiny succulents. it was so adorable and i wanted it - but had no place to put it!

i love your larger window collection, and it's so low maintenance!
