caution–man at work

Any reasonably intelligent person would have seen the outcome of this plan, but not me.

In large pots, I like to use styrofoam peanuts in the soilless mix, to lighten it, to take up space, and as a way of disposing of the peanuts. I’d repaired a large pot, or huge dish, really, filled it half full of peanuts, so I could plant a nice specimen of Opuntia phaeacantha ‘Paradox Form’ I got at Timberline Gardens.

To plant it, you have to sort of slide the cactus out of its pot, gingerly, and, honestly, I didn’t see this coming.
