The geraniums, commonly known as cranesbill geraniums, are a group of flowering plants that come from the genus of the same name. “Geranium” is a Greek word meaning “crane,” and cranesbill geraniums are aptly named because their seed casings have a shape similar to a crane’s bill. With more than 400 pest-resistant species to choose from, cranesbill geraniums offer the home gardener a wide variety of sizes, leaf patterns and flower colors. Other varieties of geraniums include bigroot cranesbill, Dalmatian cranesbill and dwarf cranesbill.
The garden geranium is a favorite outdoor-indoor plant. It belongs to the genus Pelargonium which means “stork” in Latin. This plant has a long, slender fruit capsule that resembles a stork’s bill.Geranium flowers come in white, pink, salmon, red, fuchsia, lavender, and bi-colors. There are double flower types and old-fashioned singles. Growth habits range from trailing vine types to upright garden forms. Leaves may be nearly circular or deeply segmented and lacy. They can be green, green and white, or patterned with combinations of reds, yellows, and oranges. Although the flowers have an unpleasant odor, there are scented-leaf geraniums that are very pleasant. Aromas include lemon, orange, lime, peppermint, pineapple, nutmeg, rose, and many others.
Geraniums are attractive in outdoor planters and tubs. The soil in these containers becomes warm from the sun, so it’s important to water regularly. Planters and tubs must have drain holes so moisture won’t be trapped in the bottom, causing roots to rot. Geraniums make popular bedding plants in the garden, but they’re also commonly grown indoors or outside in hanging baskets.

The ruby ball cactus, also known as the red cap cactus, is actually a grafted specimen. The colorful red top is a Gymnocalycium, while the lower green cactus could be any one of a number of varieties: its main job is to display the Gymnocalycium at an advantageous height. As a result, these plants are popular in the cacti dish gardens frequently offered for sale. As far as growing them goes, they are not especially demanding, but they are not without challenges either. If there is a disconnect between the light requirements of the stock cactus on the bottom and the scion on top, the challenge is finding the right balance so both will thrive.
There are multitudes of varieties of Gymnocalycium cacti, which are collector’s plants with a wide following. The common ruby ball grafted plant relies on the G. mihanovichii, which is available in red, yellow, orange or pink. Older plants will sometimes flower with pink flowers during the summer, and many people mistake the colored ball on top for a flower when it’s the actual plant itself. As a point of interest, the ruby ball hybrids cannot produce their own chlorophyll, and thus rely on the grafted root stock to produce chlorophyll and keep them alive. The plant will noticeably plump up. It’s imperative that the cactus is not exposed to prolonged dampness and sitting water.
This species is actually only the top, usually brightly colored pink, red, or orange, cactus that sits upon another species to which it has been grafted on. This is a necessity as Ruby Ball does not contain any chlorophyll due to a genetic mutation, and therefore requires to be grafted on top of another cactus in order to receive the nutrients it needs.
