From tropical jungles to the driest deserts, from sea level to the tops of snow-packed mountains, cacti thrive in a multitude of environments. This wonderful, fact-filled reference introduces 150 of the most common and popular species. Each entry has a color photo and includes information on its origins, growing season, discovery, naming, and domestication. Take a look at the bright red flowering rat-tail cactus; the sea urchin cactus with pale yellowish petals; and the tall saguaro--the one you'll have seen in all those Westerns--and 147 more! Understand the process they use to extract water in areas of limited moisture, and examine the variety of their spines and the shapes of their flowers. See how to care for these exotic but hardy plants, using the important details to provide an atmosphere in which they can flourish and flower. You'll get the secrets of successful propagation (whether by seed, soil, or grafting); growing mediums and tools; recipes for soil mixes for particular species; facts on watering and feeding; and careful guidance on common problems. It's everything you need to know about cultivating cactus in the home and garden. 112 pages (all in color), 8 1/2 x 11.
