Albino Euphorbia for Cactus Monday
This is a new cactus that my daughter gave us for our 40th anniversary this week. This is a Euphorbia Lactea Crest grafted. Its an albino cactus that is grafted to another that is green in order for it to live. The albino cactus can not manufacture chlorophyll for its own food so it's grafted to another cactus to generate the chlorophyll. Pretty interesting! I'm anxious to see how it grows and changes.
