One of my favorite plants is the cactus.
It all started when my grandfather gave me a cactus to put in front of my computer. He had heard that it helps with the radiation from the monitor. It most likely doesn't, but I still gave it a try.
I ended up falling in love with the plant as it grew on my desk. Perhaps it was the digital glow of the monitors and my good care for the cactus, or perhaps it was just meant to be, but that first cactus I had doubled in size within just a few months.
Since then, I've had several cacti, and I've really enjoyed seeing many varieties of cactus in botanical gardens while traveling.
