Today I want to discuss with you all something slightly embarrassing (not a weird skin thing on my bum I promise x). I can’t keep cacti alive. I love the prickly little things but throughout my life I have tried and failed many many times to keep them. I don’t know how I do it!!!!! I must have killed a good 8 of them. Even now the ones sitting up in my room look really dead. I try really hard not to overwater them, but at the same time I still give them a tiny bit every so often. I thought the whole point of a cactus was that anyone could look after them and they were pretty easy and low maintenance.
I always remember that episode of New Girl where Nick manages to kill a cactus and they make fun of him, NICK I SYMPATHISE. I like to think of myself as being a responsible person, I don’t want to be the Nick of the group (as great as he is). How am I supposed to be trusted with pets or children if I can’t even keep a bloody cactus alive?
So please, if you’re reading this and have any tips, please feel free to give me a cactus care 101 because honestly I need it.
