    Father's Day Gift

    I got these from my son for Father's Day: I was told that cactus flowers from garden centers are actually glued on. Is that right? There may actually be 2 flowers that are real, though.

    I hate these slimy, disgusting things! I've been battling them for a while now. On my outdoor plants... Okay, fine. I can accept critters crawl on them. But in my pots inside my dew terrarium?
