my circus cactus :)
I call this my circus cactus. It's beautiful, colorful, makes me smile big.
I absolutely love this plant! I had a similar one that was growing wonderfully. But I over watered it by accident. I know it sounds silly to be heartbroken over a plant, but I was. Will be ordering another one for my daughter’s upcoming birthday.
