A: Do you know?

My boss and I went down to a wholesale nursery in Vista, CA, where they have greenhouses packed with seedling cactus. These Parodia schumanniana ssp. claviceps are one example of the rich tapestry they create en masse, and I couldn't resist a shot angling them in an alternating pattern.

    Beautiful design. I could definitely see this being sold as wallpaper. I used to have a couple cacti... but I went on vacation and people forgot to water the poor darlings and they dried up :-( I guess even cacti have watering limits
