All rights reserved. Here's how to grow this heat-loving tropical oddity:Short stems topped with a few leaves emerge from the top of the rounded swollen trunk—a caudex—while a few thick roots emerge from its pointed bottom. Thanks to the nearly spherical caudex, the plant is sculptural enough to be placed like a piece of art: alone atop a small stone plinth, or grouped with similar oddities at one end of a long flat bench against a simple wall.
Nonetheless, be sure to let the plant dry out between waterings. Fertilize once a month when the plant is in active growth. Soil that's very well-draining, especially if the plant is growing where the climate isn't hot year-round, and where the plant sheds its leaves to wait out the cool weather in dormancy.
It requires well-drained, sandy or gravely soil and plenty of sunlight for the successful growth. Tipped downside-up, you can see the irregular depression from which a few thick roots will emerge when I pot up the caudex in the Spring. Customer reviews. How are ratings calculated?

Open your eyes, look within. Are you satisfied with the life you're living? Bob Marley. Life Eyes You Look. The quality, not the longevity, of one's life is what is important. Martin Luther King, Jr. Life Quality Important Longevity. You were, in the least cheesy way to say it, my knight in shining armor, as you seemed to be what I have always needed. But oh boy, I was wrong. When I thought you were there for me, you were really there to get the latest scoop on all the drama, or you were in it just for yourself.
Anything that would benefit you, you were there for. You cared more for the information I was trusted with, than the person you were dealing with. It is so, so hard to succumb to the fact that I was nothing more than a bank of information, to which you robbed and emptied out until you were satisfied. Caring more than you hurts more than I can even put into words. It seems that my efforts to keep you around did nothing more than push you away, because in reality your stay in my life was only temporary.
I know I am young and that there are many other people in this world, but that doesn't stop a heart feeling what it does. I was blinded by the fact that I had someone that I could relate to so much that I didn't realize that how selfish you actually were.
You were selfish, because if you actually cared, you would still be here. I made you a priority in my life, when I was just your option. There were so many times I would need you, and you would never show up. If you wanted to be in my life, you sure didn't act like it. Even though you have caused my heart to ache in a way that it never has, I also should thank you. You showed me everything that I never want to be. I never want to make someone feel the way you made me feel.
I want someone to choose me first like I chose them as a priority. I want to have someone be completely honest with me, even if it hurts to hear. And most importantly, I want someone to care for me, something that you never did. Thank you for causing this hurt, because it has helped me grow infinitely. I can't say I want you back in my life, but I can thank you for being in it to teach me how to be a better person.
Today is Bisexuality Day and I'm more than ready to give all the bisexuals some love by breaking the stigma. I see you, I hear you, I appreciate you. And, honestly, bisexuals tend to be forgotten becuase bi-erasure wants to hold onto biphobia to question the existence and legitimacy of bisexuality. While COVID is risking everyone's physical health, it's also destroying the world's economy and personal finances, weakening mental health, wreaking havoc on education During their first semester at Instituto de Empresa IE Business School while working on graduate degrees in Madrid, Spain, soon-to-be-newlyweds Rory and Gigi met when they were placed in a workgroup together — and the rest was history.
Though things haven't always been easy for the pair because of immigration, starting a skincare business together, and now, canceling their dream wedding because of the pandemic, they have always worked together as a team maybe we should all be in a workgroup with our future spouses. Shortly after Kaihla's sister made her a dating profile on Bumble despite her fear of being catfished , she matched with Shanna, and their chemistry was quickly undeniable.
So much so that only a month and a half into dating, Shanna told her best friend "I think I'm going to marry her," and eventually, the nonprofit worker and elementary PE teacher duo proved this to be true. In the fourth episode of a new docuseries called "Pandemic Weddings" by SoulPancake, the couple opens up about how they met, the difficulties of canceling a non-refundable wedding of their dreams that took a year and a half to plan , as well as the pain of having family members who didn't support their marriage use the pandemic as a convenient excuse not to come.
This fall was my boyfriend and I's two-year anniversary! In the past for special occasions, we've typically gone out for a movie and dinner or just did something fun in general. Instead, we wanted to try something new that kept us significantly more socially distanced.
Luckily, I found a TikTok trend a few months ago that gave me the perfect idea! The Target TikTok trend blew up all over for couples and friends alike. It seemed like a fun activity for us but also a good way to get each other gifts that we might not have thought about.
If there's one thing everyone's talking about right now, it's voting — in real life, on social media, and yes, even on dating apps.
And rightfully so! There's a song here or a song there by them that works for me. I like Styx with the exception of "Mr. Roboto", which was pure awfulness and most Billy Joel.
But I hate Ted Nugent's music as much as I hate his politics. Can't stand Britney Spears among a lot of today's generic and over-produced "talent". Among jazz artists, I was never as big a fan of Weather Report as I should have been. Beyond Birdland , their music was just too avant garde and experimental for me. I also had a hard time digesting Jon-Luc Ponti's music although it's easier to listen to now. Join Date Aug Posts 9, Originally Posted by motony.

Also, it would be interesting to hear why you don't like the person or group. The Beatles: Never understood their allure besides later on being great songwriters. There is a black group who's name I can't recall. Their lead singer reminds me of the day 30 years ago I came home and and saw an old guy sitting in the hall way. It turned out his wife had put him out and he sat there making this whinny sound. That's what the their lead singer sounds like.
Instead of sounding like the individuals that God made them, they choose to adapt this lightweight type of singing voice. It's one thing to copy a sound or style but when just about everybody jumps in the same pool it's clone city. Ricky Martin somebody got some splaining to do about how he got famous I use to not like Marvin Gaye except for his duets in his early days at Motown but realized that I was wrong about him. Another topic for a good thread would be on who did you eventually come around to.
There is more but I can't think of the names. Join Date Aug Posts 11,Jan 29, · To say NEVER cared for is really hard. There are artists I do not like but have enjoyed some of their music. , PM # motony. View Profile View Forum Posts Private Message View Articles Senior Member Join Date Aug .
