People without the time, space or patience to take care of most houseplants will find cactus plants to be a perfect choice. By following a few simple rules, these plants are easy to maintain, even for people with the most basic gardening skills. You will enjoy your unique new collection of cacti which, be assured, will continue to expand over time. As we stated at the beginner, these plants are addictive.
Those Captivating Cacti was filmed at some of the largest wholesale and best retail cacti nurseries in the United States, as well as at the Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens, The Getty and other locations for truly inspirational images. This program is a visual treat and will spur your interest in collecting these plants.
This fascinating program is based on sound horticultural principles for the best cactus care.
