Giuseppe's survival guide

A cactus that wants to be touched

Coronavirus hit Giuseppe hard. Not economically, of course, because he’s a cactus, but in matters of the heart. Giuseppe runs on love, passion, and a burning desire for the touch of a good woman. Zooming with his international arsenal of lovers isn’t as exciting as meeting them in person, looking them in the eye, and declaring his commitment. Strangely, the words “undying devotion” aren’t as effective on a conference call.

What makes Giuseppe so special

Echinocactus Grusonii, or Golden Barrel Cacti, are cushion-like plants with colourful spines. Our Golden Barrel Cactus, Giuseppe, has typical cacti light and water needs (as in: a lot of the first and a little of the second) but Giuseppe doesn’t care about that. Biology bores him. His true passion is poetry. Giuseppe wrote the following piece about his survival needs, “I am but a cactus, lover of the sun/I am but a cactus, round and small/Please, for the love of the lord, get me out of this warehouse, I want to hug my fellow green amigos but they keep their social distance from me/I am but a cactus, friend to all.”
