Oregon Cactus

The Mail Tribune in Southern Oregon writes a nice article about succulents to plant around the house. Not to get all pedantic on you, but see if you can figure out what’s wrong with this.

Here’s a more standard photo of a Strawberry Hedgehog.

Echinocereus engelmannii from Bird and Hike, taken in habitat around the Las Vegas area. Now the Agave above is a very pretty plant, but these Strawberry Hedgehogs are also pretty much a completely stunning visual experience.

The article from Oregon does have one last thing to say that is unquestionably the wisest thing this writer has ever seen in a mainstream newspaper.

One word of caution, however: raising succulents is addictive. There are so many unique varieties that next thing you know, you’ll be a collector.
