New Cactus

I bought these on eBay. For a buck, I got both of them, plus shipping of $7.38 (-: I have been looking for a baseball cactus (EUPHORBIA OBESA)for a while now, and I was pleased to find one so cheap on eBay(-: The spiral cactus(EUPHORBIA SPIRALIS) was a bonus(-:
Here are their pictures...

I guess you really can get anything you want on Ebay. Very interesting shaped cactus. I like the basketball one the best. :)

Those are so cool! I never even thought about there being many varieties of cactus.

That first photo doesn't even look like a real plant! Wow! I didn't realize you could shop eBay for plants! I've been wanting a succulent that Pam at Digging has in her front yard. If you know of one, let me know! A blue-green color. Don't know what it's called.

Cinj said...

That first cactus looks like a craft a person could make. Hmm, that gives me yet another idea. Maybe I should start writing these ideas down so I don't forget everything I want to do....

I didn't know you could buy cacti on ebay. I guess there's truly no limit to what you can buy there.

cindee said...

Hi Jody,
I am very happy with the cactus too. It was a deal(-:


Hi Cindy,
It does look like something you could make. Its very unique thats for sure. I keep touching it to make sure its alive(-:
