Brought 3 cactus from Ikea on the 4th. Place them nice on the window ledge, don't worry, wouldn't fall down one. Just now water it, saw 2 flower buds on one of them. Now waiting for it to open up. Will take photo of it and post. Wonder is it common for cactus to have flowers? :think:

Just water them once per wk will do. Cactus don't need much water. I got 3 cause the metal container comes in 3 too. ;p

Zomg. I didn't know that cactus flowers look like that. I always thought the one on top of the green colour cactus, usually red/yellow round looking thingy is the flower!! Nevermind, learnt something new today.. -___-"

On the window area, consider inside or outside? Or 1/2 1/2? :dunno::think:

I found 3 metal containers beside the cactus at Ikea and so, brought 3 pots of cactus lor. The flower will "sleep" during evening n this morning, 6am+, open again, so cute! :bsmilie:

Think ur cactus will be fine. Go down stair n get some soil to replace if u think not enough lor. Remember not to over water it. My area humility is high, thinks my cactus don't need much water liao. ;p

Hi...would like to share my 2 little ones at my kitchen window. Pics were taken after a heavy thunderstorm and water splashed all over the cactus. Tot they looked good and decided to try some macro shots on them....(taken way back in Dec'05 and still growing very well). I water them almost every other day.........
