A potted cacti/succulent given as a gift
(Rockford, IL, USA)
It has a bright green color towards the root area and as it goes up to a point is changes to a reddish brown color.
It is not very spiky as much as it is prickly there are a couple of scars just from treatment in the store I imagine.
I set it by a window all day I don't really know how much sunlight it gets I imagine no less then 8 hours and I "water" it every day just by spraying the soil around it with a light spray bottle not so that the dirt is wet but just so that it is not completely dry and so far it seems to be doing pretty well.
But I was inspecting it to see how it was doing and the "leaves" felt soft which I thought was from overwatering so I didn't know if it was suppose to feel like that or if it wasn't how I could fix it.
I don't know what kind of plant it is because the price tag had the name on it and since it was a gift they took that part off.
