Did they glue a flower onto my cacti?!?!
I bought a dish garden from a box store. (I have no idea what kind of cacti are in it. although they all look nice and SEEM healthy.)
Anyhoo, one has a purplish flower on it. My wife (after I bought it, natch) says "Hey, what's all that goo underneath the flower? Did they GLUE it on?"
Do nurseries do this? How will this affect the plant, and will I be able to take the flower off once it wilts?
Also, I noticed the stones on top of the soil are glued together. How am I to check the soil to see if it's dry? Should I chip a bit off, or remove them altogether?
Finally- no water until spring, right?
