Cactus Basics: A Comprehensive Guide to Cultivation and Care
Anyone can grow extraordinary and exotic cacti and succulents with confidence, using this fully-illustrated, inspiring and practical new guide. In its 80-page A to Z directory, gardeners encounter every strange and beautiful species and variety: sea-urchin-like astrophytum; woollily bearded espostoas; fiercely golden-spined ferocactus; bizarre-shaped tree-like cactus; hallucinogenic peyote; 40-feet high pachycereus, hanging donkey’s tails; statuesque aloes, and ground-hugging, jewel-like flowering conophytums. Displacing the myths and legends, such as these plants don’t need water or light, it offers comprehensive easy-to-follow instructions on building a collection; pests and diseases, seed raising; repotting; greenhouse cultivation; equipment; and more.
