haha...you have to do it a specific way...something along the lines of leaving it in a really dark place for like 24 hours after starving it for water for a while or something =P...look it up?

neglect works :P
it gets a bit of water once a week, guess the temp and the neglect has done wonders for it.

Ohh.... brilliant idea, had a tiny container with some lucky bamboo- the plant died, the very pretty container remains, think it's about 1.5"
A very thourough scalding might make it into a lovely decoration and hidey hole! Yay plants and bettas working together.

as far as the cacti go, i think the flowers are nice but i generally buy plants for the leafy bits...so I just work hard to make the plant grow healthy and large...plus I'm learning to propagate some of em =)

I used to do that. But don't under estimate Christmas cacti, mother inherited one that has to be 20+ years old. It's got bark in place of some leaves.
