Vera (updated 09/06)

So, I'm growing all sorts of stuff in my office, including cacti. Like the NBA playoff schedule, I'll try to update this blog entry often with pictures of my dear Vera. The current day's photo will be the one shown on the blog. The older photos will be linked. You will also find a link to this blog entry in the left hand menu entitled "What's Growing in Nonny Nu's Office?"

I was really unsure about this one. Like with the roses, I wasn't optimistic about Vera. She hasn't really been growing "fatter" much for the past, um, well, let's see...three years. Yep, that's right. She just kept growing tall and falling over instead of growing stouter. But, she didn't give up! She's a toughie.

Sept. 6 Update:Here's Vera and her roommate. She's growing up tall and strong.

July 6: Yep, Vera's doing just fine.
June 1: Still going strong!
May 21: Look at the two new nubs, one near the base and the other near the center of the plant! Repotting with new soil and adding plant food really helped. I'm learning! I hope she gains some weight.

Why waste money on a plant. They just sit there. How's Stubbie. Is he dead, yet....
One of my co-worker got a beta. What's this world come to. Bunch of copy cats.

That was a typo...what does it call when one accidentally press the enter button.

Vera -- that's the name of a cousin of ours. The one who's really snobbish. Funny you choose that name. Anywoo...she looks good. You should try the ancient refugee secret -- use a take-out chopstick as a stake to keep Vera up.
