Hello Edward,  
Have you ever wondered who starts all of our seeds and nurtures them as they grow? That would be this amazing lady right here! That’s our Barb! Some of you might know her from her days of running our satellite location out in Sun Prairie, but these days you’re more likely to have seen her friendly face around the greenhouse.  

The seeds will need to get used to a new plant Momma! Because this plant Mom is moving on up! She has recently accepted a promotion to a position as Retail Manager. Her friendly smile and sunny hello brightens all of our days, and hopefully yours in the near future!

A little trivia about Barb … her favorite flavor of Ice Cream is Mint Chocolate Chip! Just in case you run into her during those hot summer days here in the greenhouse. 😉
A SALE to make you JOLLY !!!

Moon Cactus

Looking for a fun gift for that hard to buy for person? We have moon cacti that are sure to please the plant geeks in your life!
 
Moon cacti are actually two different species of cacti that are grafted onto each other. They are cut and placed so that they fuse together to form a bond and grow as one plant.
 
The top cactus is a bright, neon colored variety that is red, yellow, orange, pink or purple. It is generally ball-shaped. These cacti are neon colored because they lack chlorophyll, the green pigment that is necessary for plants to absorb energy from light. Without the grafting, this cactus would die as a seedling, as it cannot sustain itself. The lack of chlorophyll allows the underlying neon pigment to come through, a similar concept to leaves changing colors in the fall.
 
The bottom cactus, the rootstock, is a green type. The most common is a triangular-shaped variety that is tolerant of extreme drought. This variety, left to grow on its own is actually a night-blooming cactus, pollinated by bats and produces what’s known as Dragon Fruit.

The rootstock is what provides the essential nutrients for growth of the entire plant. Because of its tolerance of a wide range of moisture conditions, moon cacti are relatively-easy-to-care-for plants.

 
Moon Cacti should be grown in bright, indirect light. Keep them out of full sun or they will sunburn. Do not over-water them! Water thoroughly and allow them to dry out thoroughly between waterings. Fertilize moon cactus from April to September with Bonide Liquid Cactus Plant Food. Because they are a “tropical” plant, they don’t like to be cold, so grow in a warm environment.
 
We have an assortment of colors, so stop by to see these cute, colorful plants. They are sure to brighten up your winter and bring a smile to all of your plant geek friends!
