Maybe they have been listening???
Maybe they have been listening to the multitude of complaints on the forums about "glufers" (strawflowers glued to cactus), saying they are tricking people into buying these. So, they haven't stopped the practice, but if you read the small print...you should be aware they have strawflowers! LOL This is some sort of "Truth in Advertising", anyway!!
I wonder what it will take to get them to stop this completely? After removal, it seems to take forever to grow out, but is never really healed. :(
