If you’re like me, you like having a desert plant around, whether it be a colossal cactus, a jolly jade plant, or another succulent species o’ flora.
But if you’re like me, you ain’t exactly the Monopoly man, and cactus plants just aren’t in your budget. So here’s how to get free desert plants and cactuses, like this guy:
Anyhoo, without further ado, here’s how to get free desert plants (for free, I might add)!
Step 1: Go to a store (Lowes, Home Depot, anywhere they sell cactuses and other succulents). Play it cool.
Step 2: In the desert plant section, collect small broken-off leaves or stems on the ground. Don’t just rip them off the plants, that’s stealing, and plant assault! Ask an employee how much the lil’ broken-off leaf is. Chances are they’ll say you can have it.
Step 3: Put the lil’ cactus piece on top of a pot of fresh dirt. Press it lightly into the dirt, with the firm yet gentle touch of an English nanny.
Step 4: Let it sit dry for about a week, then water it, put it in the sun, and wait.
That’s it! With any luck, you’ll soon have a thriving desert plant of your own, for absolutely free! You can send in some of that saved money to the EcoJoes Fund, it’d be very appreciated.
