Operation Christmas Cactus

I am a lover of plants, ever since my small hands first felt the coolness of the rich soil embedded with minerals in between my fingers, it also helped that I worked at a flower nursery for a couple of  years too i guess. See that plant up there? It has been holding on by a string since 2003! That was the year my mow mow died, me and her were like peanut butter and jelly so alike, i miss her all the time.  This plant was sent to her while she was in the hospital a few days before she died, so i decided to take it upon myself to adopt it from my parents house, i'm planning to save it somehow with a little tender loving care. It hasn't bloomed in years, so i can't remember what color it was back then, so it will be a beautiful surprise, if and when it does bloom. After a little research, i found these plants can live for generations! I can't bring her back, but i'm praying i can revive a little piece of her to keep in my home in memory of her. Below is a post i wrote about her on my old blog, feel free to dig all you like, alot of my best writings are posted there.
