| ||This is a monstrose specimen of an unknown type of cactus plant growing profusely in aquaculture. The problem with this species is that bugs like to make those hard-to-reach corners their home. If this specimen is not properly cleaned, it will be a bug hotel. I simply take the specimen out and give it a stiff spray of water. |
At left is the specimen after I cut off three large portions for potting up in soil. At right is the same specimen after 1 month. The cut surface has healed and scars formed. It is not dangerous to cut a cactus specimen that is in aquaculture if the plant is kept clean. The wound must be given a day or two so that its surface dries up.
