I want to know the life expectancy of a plant no longer able to breath or produce food?

They are painted, such a shame from natural beauty.

Thus inhibiting their ability to resperate and photosynthesize.

Why they don't sell the plants in full sun with all of their gorgeous natural colors is a mystery to me. Those are so much prettier than paint. I've bought over 100 "tiny green things" and have seen at least 90 of them turn the most amazing colors, from pink to red, blue, gray, purple, orange, brown, chartreuse/yellow, and various variegations. Let's see some real colors, plant'sters!

I agree. Nature's colors are perfectly adequate.

I've seen the painted cacti lately here too and then I see them on the clearance rack, since no one bought them. I love the way the cooler weather changes the succulents naturally, and love all these posted pics. Here's a few of mine to add to the collection here.
