Old man of the Andes

The original old man of the andes, with his bristley grey beard.He collapsed before under the weight of new growth. This is the repotted top section.The base (his old legs) have two baby cactus growing at the top.

I always kill cacti by overwatering them. I feel sorry for them when they get dry! I guess you could say that I kill them with kindness.

I have come to love the cactus.They do respond to being cared for from march to november like houseplants.But they need to sleep between november to march.They like my kitchen windowsill and have doubled in size.So much that the old man snapped off at the legs!!
