Hi, everyone! I'm sorry for not posting often. I've been very busy with school, and I'm also going through a big step in my life right now, so I didn't have time to post about my plants. I'm not sure if I posted previously, but I had to restart my collection due to mites. My african violet collection was infested, and I had to get rid of everything. I'm currently in the process of restarting through leaf cuttings. Once I get everything growing, I'll make sure to post pretty pictures in upcoming posts.

Me and cacti do not get along. I don't know why I keep killing every single cactus I get. I can keep african violets, regular ground covers, and other plants just fine. It's just cacti that I have a problem with. I give them water when the soil looks really dry to the point the pot is almost weightless. It's winter, so I try to water them less due to slower evaporation rate. But why. Why do they keep dying? How much water is too much and exactly how much is too little? I can never know...
