STARTING A CACTUS AND SUCCULENTS COLLECTION
there are so many succulents and cactus, you should
know something about them before you shop for plants.
Study the photographs and lists in this book, suppliers'
catalogues, then try to decide which plants you
want. Some plants are truly outstanding, many of
them are more bizarre than beautiful, and a few
are simply oddities. If you have a chance to visit
a succulents and cactus nursery, you can be sure
of your selections. Look for specimens that have
good color and form, abundant bloom, and vigor.
Start your collection with whatever plants appeal
to you; sooner or later, you may find a particular
group that will interest you more than others.
Flower shows often contain displays of succulents
and cactus which will also help acquaint you with
the variety of flowers and plants available to
the collector. Accent the collection with wind
chimes or other decor.
