My Blue Thumb

Oops! I goofed watering the plants this week.

I got a new spray bottle from Home Depot and I put the Fantastic cleaner it in.

Thinking about the new bottle, I accidentally picked it up to water the plants.

I sprayed the cactus and immediately realized what I had done!

Oh sh*t! I just poisoned my cactus. So quickly, I poured water in to try to dilute it.

I thought to myself how the plant would react and I imagined how a person would react if they drank Fantastic.

Sure enough within a couple of days the cactus was reeling.

But I think a person could probably recover if it wasn’t too much, so I’m hoping the cactus will too. ;-)
