Success with Cacti and Other Succulents
by Shirley-Anne Bell

Paperback: 160 pages   ISBN: 1861084021
Publisher: Guild of Master Craftsman (Feb 2006)
Striking to look at, cacti and other succulents are easy to care for, too. Combining reliable and detailed horticultural information with inspiring ideas for displaying the plants (such as planting them in unusual containers, like old boots or broken pots), this is an irresistible invitation to the joys of growing these fascinating plants. Plus: the extensive alphabetical directory in the back helps readers choose from the vast array of cacti and succulents available, to find the ones best suited for their growing conditions.


Crazy About Cacti and Succulents
by Ray Rogers

Paperback: 120 pages   ISBN: 1889538728
Publisher: Brooklyn Botanic Garden (May 28, 2006)
Cacti and succulents are among the most bizarre and beautiful plants a gardener can grow—and included here are some of the most remarkable of them all: stapeliads and ceropegias. The Brooklyn Botanic Garden has brought together master gardeners from across the country, who show how easy it is to cultivate a collection of cacti and succulents on a windowsill or under artificial lights. They also introduce varieties that are hardy enough to grow outside in most climates. There are chapters on medicinal plants and succulent bonsai, plus advice on how experts groom their plants for competition.


Cactus Basics: A Comprehensive Guide to Cultivation and Care
by Tony Mace, Suzanne Mace

Paperback: 128 pages   ISBN: 0600614689
Publisher: Hamlyn (March 28, 2006)
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.
