CACTUS AND SUCCULENTS

Stapelia gigantea

My love for tropicals started more than a decade ago when I was delighted by the sight of the bizarre shapes of "Euphorbia lactea cristata" (Elkhorn Cactus). Shortly afterwards I fell in love with "Cereus monstrosus," which I selected for its unusual shape. A few more succulents followed and I was hooked.

Several years later, I discovered bromeliads and the sub-family Pitcairnioideae which includes Dyckias and Hechtias among others. They all have a close resemblance to the succulents. And just recently I became fascinated with the eccentric growth pattern of the Rhipsalis.

In the last few years I have become totally obsessed with conifers.

The environmental requirement for each species depends upon their native habitat. Before you buy plants, try to research the cultural conditions and how to provide them. Select plants that will grow in the environment you can supply. For more cultural information, growing tips and solving problems, I recommend to contact your local Succulent and Cacti Society.
