I have been entirely too influenced by this community...

We had a wicked hailstorm last night, so this morning I went outside early to check on my plants. I've got a small but awesome cactus growing in a pot on my air conditioner, and I was really afraid that the hail had damaged it. So I go outside, and start poking at the branches. There was no damage, but at the end of one little branch, rather than a leaflet, there was a little raised bump which was lighter green than the rest of the cactus, with a little speck in the center. And when I popped it, all the trapped sap came out. Cactus sap is white and sticky.

So essentially, my cactus had a blackhead.
