Sept. 12 column: Growing cactus

Growing cactus
Here is a link to my feature story in today’s edition of The Spokesman-Review: Let cacti cure those winter blues.¬†As you can guess, this article is about growing cactus indoors. They are really easy to grow as houseplants. There are so many different types that half the fun is choosing ones that will look cool in your home.

They need very little care but it gives us something growing to look at and care for during the winter. If you’re not sure what kinds you want to get, visit the Gaiser Conservatory in Spokane’s Manito Park. I was there recently and was impressed by how large their collection is.
