A while back, I bought some mufflers from member larrybl. Inside the box was this little cactus from his yard.

I was at Atwoods the other day and found a bowl & a bag of black sand on a clearance table. Paid $0.89 for both. Thought it would be nice for the cactus.

I placed a few of the white rock he sent with it around.

The bowl has a small hole near the bottom to let out excess water, so should provide a nice home for it.

That's a fun thing to do, I have a similar project going on in a window here as well. If it is the cactus I think it is, it will have a beautiful pink blossom for you. They grow on the prairie badlands in southern Saskatchewan along with a prickly pear that has large yellow blooms. In the spring/early summer the dry hillsides were covered with them, beautiful!

Should be fun to watch it grow. Best part is, you can't really kill it if you forget to water it every now and then. Which reminds me to water my only plant.
