why do prickly pear cactus turn purple

why do prickly pear cactus turn purple

This has been going on for a while (about a year), one of my cacti has turned purple. I've just replanted it after its pot fell and broke (no, it did not spend the year on the ground). What is the cause of this and what should I do about it? I put the cacti out on the open balcony in the summer and put them on the windowsill for the rest of the year, so the usual temperature they are exposed to is 20-35C (as low as 10C during the night). I water them twice a month during the summer and once a month otherwise with tap water, about 100 ml per plant. The height of the cactus is about 6. 5 cm. The cactus in question spends most of its time very close to my other cacti (~10 cm), and some of them don't look too hot, pictures below. ...

 why do people who were abused tend to be abusers

why do people who were abused tend to be abusers

Feb. 6, 2003 -- It is widely believed that boys who are victims of sexual abuse become abusers themselves. Studies of pedophiles suggest this often is the case, but new research shows that the risk may be smaller than previously thought. Roughly one in 10 male victims of child abuse in a U. K. study later went on to abuse children as adults. But the risk was far greater for sexually victimized children who came from severely dysfunctional families. Family history of violence, sexual abuse by a female, maternal neglect, and lack of supervision were all associated with a threefold-increased risk that the abused would become an abuser. The study is reported in the Feb. 8 issue of The Lancet. "The message here is that sexual victimization alone is not sufficient to suggest a boy is likely to

why was the us involved in the persian gulf war

Of all the policy successes during this era, the Department of State and President Bush are most clearly associated with the successful effort to roll back the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait. When Saddam Hussein invaded his small, oil-rich neighbor in the summer of 1990, the Department faced its first full-scale post-Cold War international crisis.

 why do we need to store food

why do we need to store food

Plants store food for lots of different reasons. Stored food helps them to survive,grow and reproduce. We are lucky that they do so because if they didn't do so everything living would die out. The reason for this is that the main food resource for every living thing is plant. In the summer-time, plants photosynthesis more and so more food is produced by them. The food produced by them can't be wasted and so they store it. Storing the food helps them to use it in winter and survive because there is very less sunlight available and so they photosynthesis less. For example, carrots store food in its roots and live on it all winter and in summers a new plant grows from these roots. When they have extra food they store it in their seeds and when the seed grows it gets it's food from the plant

why do prostitutes do what they do

Allan Schwartz, LCSW, Ph. D. was in private practice for more than thirty years. He is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the states This essay is a follow up to one that was posted on December 6, 2008, titled, Why Do Men Go To Prostitutes? The answers to these questions are many and complex. The complexity is embedded in the dangers of being simplistic, making generalizations, being judgmental, and falling prey to stereotyping. The most common stereotype of prostitutes is that they are all street walkers, drug addicted, controlled by pimps, and willing to accept a few dollars for their services. In reality, this oldest profession falls into several categories. Yes, there are the street walkers whose lives are awful. However, there are also those women who provide sexual favors in

 why is a triangle stronger than a square

why is a triangle stronger than a square

In mathematical principle, I agree, triangles are good. In reality, because humans (from a front view, looking solely on a 2d plane) are more rectangle-shaped, generally, than triangle-shaped, it becomes difficult to design triangles around humans. Also, because gravity vectors tend to run at a 90 degree vertical orientation from the flat plane of the ground, it is more useful to have objects with a series of 90 degree bends so that you have one part upright and one part resting against the ground (a-la frames for doors, and indeed full houses). As someone else mentioned, hanging and trying to get through a triangular door would be horribly, needlessly complicated and would be a similarly difficult thing to mount properly so that it wouldn t slam shut the moment you opened it. ...

why do we search for eggs on easter

Easter is soon upon us (April 16 to be exact) and despite the usual chocolate bunnies, jelly beans, and other sweet treats, Easter egg huntsВare still the most popular tradition. If you stop and really think about it, itвs a bit odd someone hides a bunch of eggs and we suddenly turn into our 10-year-old selves, trying to find them as many as we can to fill up our baskets. But the question is why? OK, let s try to get to the bottom of this beloved tradition. Egg as a symbol. While Easter is a religious holiday, the egg is more likely a pagan tradition. For Christians, the В Jesusв resurrection and emergence from the tomb (a rebirth if you will). Decorating the egg a forbidden food during Lent season symbolized celebrating the end of a season of fasting. ...

 why do we only see one side of the moon

why do we only see one side of the moon

Why does the Earth only see one side of the Moon? (I know about sychronous orbit, I'm just asking why) The Moon rotates exactly once per revolution of the Earth which is the reason why it shows only one face at the Earth. If you face a pole and move around the pole showing your face at the pole all the time, you will notice that you have rotated once per revolution around the pole. Why has this happened to the Moon? It is due to tidal forces of the Earth. You know that the Moon's tidal forces causes the high and low tides on the Earth. In the same way, the Earth exerts tidal forces on the Moon which are more powerful as the Earth is more massive than the Moon. ...
