My husband has this theory that if you just give plants water regularly they will grow. Hence he took my languishing and dormant 2"-high cactus out of its (seldom-watered) pot and put it in our garden flower bed where it gets watered with everything else by our irrigation system (we have a borehole), twice a day for half an hour. Voila. Desert flower? I think not. Now it's even making babies on all sides. Must be making up for lost time.
