Poor ol' Big Cacti has been busting out of his home for years -- he grew, and his roots grew, but his pot just never did. So he was terribly root-bound, and rain pooled atop his sad silly pot, and cacti can handle water, certainly, but they do not need to bleedin' soak in it like they're water lillies.
They're Cacti, for the luvva pete's sake.
Which he borrowed from his friend arborvitae.
Big Cacti has become a gigantic cactus.
Remember when he was a kid?
. . . but, yeah . . .
. . . we were all kids.
But who has time to be a kid when surgical success is at stake? Not us, that's who.
Big Cacti survived his procedure, got a nice new coat of rocks, and we are pleased and proud to announce . . .
Cacti Corey's not doing half-bad herself.
