ok I've definitely given every last ounce of love I have spare to my cacti... they used to prickle me really bad at first ..
but last time I repotted them , not one of them that stabbed me hurt this time... nor when i reach around them to open and close windows
Either my skin has hardened up to them, or
my nerves have fucked off south from the surface of my skin..., or
I've "sanded" down the spines ... perhaps causing them to blunten .... what with my having been stabbed so much already
or they must really love me ... I like to think it's the latter myself ... since the newest trichos fell over yesterday in the cuttings pot
and the only thing I had to catch them in a split second including a pre-emptive wince.... was my bare hand .... even that didnt hurt..
perhaps my skin developed new spidey senses a bit like parking sensors detect obstacles or potential collision material?
Has anyone else noticed the phenomenom of previously-defensive cacti becoming more docile and gentle over time ...with regards to handling?
