Let’s get cereus *

I was very excited to see that one of the blossoms on the cactus (in the previous post  cactus) had left behind a little fruit, after the blossom had withered and fallen off. I had visions of savouring the fruits of my own labour. Well, I know the cactus does all the work, but let’s not get all technical, okay?


Imagine my distress when I went out next morning, to find the fruit had dropped off. This self sufficiency isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. 

There are a few more blossoms appearing, maybe one of them will be fertilized and having more tenacity in its being. Keep me in your thoughts and … well, thoughts will do.


* When I thought of the title, I was hoping very hard that the pronunciation of  cereus would be what I wanted.  And it was! Click on this link cereus  to hear how it is said.

And, to make my cup further runneth over, consensus has it that this cactus does indeed dwell within the cereus family. 2018 is off to a good start.

  8. Forget what He says. If you get two flowers open try cross fertilizing with a fine paint brush. Often the first fruit of any doesn’t work too well.

  10. It is sad that there’s no baby cactus, in spike of the fact that you did everything in your power to promote fruit.
