Six Word Saturday


Growing cactus can be hazardous work!

This is my first entry in six word Saturday. I wanted a picture that truly represented how I feel at this moment. Ouch! I picked up a large ceramic pot of succulents and ruptured the last two disc's in my back. Doing so pinched my sacral nerve. So this succulent represents my two butt cheeks with pins and needles in them!!!!! Yikes! Ok, now quit laughing!

Actually this is not a cactus but a succulent. It is a type of euphorbia! Butt whatever!!!!

What a beautiful pain in your butt!!! I tried to find this euphorbia in my book, but don't see it. There sure are a LOT of really ultra cool euphorbias, aren't there??? Be careful, and whatever you do, don't poke your eye out with this thing!!! :)

I don't think I've come across such a pokey looking succulent! This looks a little dangerous.

Hi. I found your blog googling info on little jewel succulents. I have no experience with succulents, but bought some from my nursery in late summer--two little jewel plants among them, and my favorites. Maybe I watered them too much (only when they became very dry), but they started growing really tall (not the other plants I bought though), and I loved their little compact look. I'm sort of regretting this now, but I cut the part that was growing tall in hopes new growth would come in in its place. Do you know if I've totally butchered the plant?

Hi Marlene, I'm glad you found me. Now I am not sure exactly what succulent you may have. Is it Pachyveria hybrid glauca 'Little Jewel'. You can google it and see if this is what it looked like when you bought it. If this is it then it sounds like lack of light has made it long and spindly. that can happen with some succulents. Others will just turn yellow or pale and die. Cutting it off could be a good idea but it will still need some light. Some succulents need more sun than others. It is sometimes just trial and error. Just like water. If you want to take a picture and email it to me maybe I can help more. My email is sweetstuff1957@gmail.com. Hope this helps!
