A simple plant idea


mex-wed-cactus-focus This is a really easy and cost-effective way to get some permanent green in your home. Most cactuses are super hardy. Do make sure that you keep these out of the way of 'little fingers' (cactus prickles are not fun!)

1. empty some mini cans (i had baked beans on toast for lunch for week!)

2. paint them and pot with mini cactuses‬

3. water them a small amount each week (contrary to belief, cactuses do need 'some' water! listen carefully, they 'squeak' when they soak up water)

4. watch and enjoy. Cactuses look even better afew months later when the ‪cactuses‬ start to take on weird and wonderful shapes.
