Saguaros Need A Nurse Plant

March 20, 2019
Went for a walk this morning and spied a budding saguaro on the northern end of our property. I don't know why I hadn't seen it before.

Starter Plant Protects Young Saguaro

   According to a botany-minded friend of mine, "nurse plants protect budding saguaros and it may take 20 years for the bud to emerge into a one foot plant."

   This little plant is well on her way.

  1. The sameness would be you cant get out of either one...stuck in a rut or stuck in a grave you're doomed regardless...
