Well my Birthday is almost here and I surfed the web looking for what I want. This little thing caught my eye. It's an electronic pot that tells you it's needs via a series of pictograms on an LCD display. It uses sensors to find the plant's moisture level,temperature and it even can be updated via a usb cable so it can take optimal care of your specific plant type. I so want this! The only problem is that it doesn't exist yet, and it'll probably cost $1000+ if it did exist. Maybe in 20 years they might get around to actually making one of these.

It finally happened! Snow started to fall around Sunday morning, and has created quite a few problems for me. Unfortunately, some of my "Winter resistant" cacti I planted outside weren't so fulfilling of their name. The victims were two succulents that grew pretty well in the summer and a potted succulent that I really didn't pay much attention to. They seem to be the only things "The White Death" has claimed of my plants. The good part is that I have received my winter school break and had enough time today to go and build a snowman. Isn't he cute? I didn't have the time to go look under the snow for a few things and substituted the nose and mouth with some old paint from the garage.

Well it has been almost a month since I updated my blog. There's not many plants to photograph in Mid-December. But fortunately for me , after an entire year of watering and a transplant, my Christmas cactus gave me a surprise! This Christmas cactus came from a piece of my mom's Christmas cactus that got ripped off in a Christmas tree decorating freak accident last year. It grew like a weed for the whole year, and even outgrew the small pot I planted it in, so I had to move it into the Hexagon bamboo porcelain pot. It's a little dusty because I was afraid that if I move it the extremely fragile flower will fall off. Well I hope my Amaryllis bulb will be as lucky.
