Grow Your Own

Sometimes when you want something done right, you just have to do it yourself. That seems to be the case if you want a 40-foot cactus or a plant that feels your pain. You choose: the Giant Saguaro or Sensitivity Plant kits. You’ll get a 4” x 5” plastic terrarium, a seed packet, some pink gravel, a germination disc. And yes, it’s going to take some time and some re-plantings before your Carnegiea Gigantea (named for steel and railroad baron Andy Carnegie) is 40 feet tall and weighs 4,000 pounds, but that will teach you patience. The sensitivity plant will be sensitive much sooner.
