Pencil Cactus

Whew – just a nervous Nellie comment

Zone Northeastern Massachusetts - BRR! It's too cold for November! | CactiLoverInMass added on November 23, 2018 | Answered

After trimming some gangly growth from my ancient Pencil Cactus, I googled because I wanted to be sure I could propagate more plants from the cuttings. One of the first hits was: Pencil Cactus Plant – How To Grow Pencil Cactus By Bonnie L. Grant. Great article, nice story, BUT I thought one could not legally bring plants and plant materials, alive or dead, across state lines! I was pretty sure Bonnie wouldn't do that, and that you wouldn't publish the article on your website if that were true! So, I googled transporting plants into Arizona and saw that it was fine! Obviously I worry to much! Don't know how I got that idea into my head, but maybe some other state? Anyway, thought you might enjoy the story; glad I did a little fact checking.

And now I see that I 'conflated' Bonnie's article with Nell's. What a dope I am! I'll blame it on too much turkey and freezing cold weather last few days. Apologies to both. Two good articles!
