Not something you really pay attention to, unless you are one of those unconscience strokers... But I noticed today that my S. phillippsiae has a unique texture to the whole plant. Sorta rough, bumpy, compelling feel to it. I am trying to nurse back a trade plant, that has sort of one root left, and I keep tossing it in buckets of water hoping it will osmose (the verb form of osmosis?) enough water to plump out abit. Not working so far, but I am hoping sheer attention will turn the tide.
I do absently fondle my S. trifaciatas from time to time. That's why I keep them way over in the corner. One of my kirkii's has a compelling feel to it also. But this plant is odd enough, I find myself carrying it around with me, looking like a total perve...
Anybody else have relationships with their plants that, um, transcend boundries?
