In preparing for our move - hubby said the cactus has to go - i am very easy going, but not with that! I told him i wouldn't sign closing documents on this house when we move unless the cactus was in the truck. We will have to have an 18wheeler take our stuff out of state because of a house, basement, shed, etc. full of stuff anyway. What i need to know is how to protect it? It has 4-5 stalks 6 feet tall with many branches off of it. Do i put bubble wrap or something inside among branches and then wrap the entire thing in a blanket. I'm assuming i lose atleast one branch, but really want to bring it. I bought it for my hubby our first christmas together and it was only 3 1/2 feet tall. It's the only plant in 16 years together that i haven't killed! I have no other plants in the house because they just die. Outside my gardens are beautiful though - mother nature does the watering. Any suggestions would be welcome.
