Got into gardening with lock down like the whole world it seems. Small back yard, so everything I grow is in pots, having a go and involving the kids.

Thus one is such a slow grower I always think it hasn't grown. Turns out it has. #braincactus #cactus #mammillariaelongatacristata

Mine in Vegas wasn’t doing anything either, then only I side of it grew. Unexplainable 🤔🌞

I'd even take one side growing @sunlovin I'm hoping maybe spring will help it along.

It looks good. It was a slow start in Spring for the one side that did grow on mine. 🌞

Wanted to compare with the last pic, see if it's changed. Looks exactly the same to me. Though one of the joints seems to have slight rot, I stopped watering 4 months ago and it hasn't gotten any worse. Learning, learning. #cactus #braincactus #mammillariaelongata #swipeforprogress

I have one. It seems to be a slow grower. 🌞

Yes it really does look exactly the same 5 months later. :) I'm just happy it's alive. I'll take slow growing for not dying any day.
