The Complete Book of Cacti and Succulents - Review
The Complete Book of Cacti and Succulents is a good introduction to the topic written by an expert. It is bountifully illustrated and covers the gamut from basic botany to grafting.
Sting of Pearls Plant
String of pearls is an easy succulent to grow indoors in a hanging pot or outdoors in a warm climate. Its long stems can hang several feet below the pot, and it even has flowers!
Calandrinia - Rock Purslane
With its bright magenta flowers swaying atop long flower spikes, the calandrinia is eyecatching. A bonus is that it flowers for many months with very little care.
Living Stones, Split Rocks, and Baby Toes
Succulents that look like stones or rocks? These fascinating plants are easier to grow that their exotic looks would lead you to believe. Be stingy with water!
Garden Tools for Succulents
Gardening with succulents doesn't call for many tools, but there are a few handy implements that can make your job easier.
A holiday cactus is a popular gift plant. A spine-free cactus with colorful flowers that can last many years - what's not to love?
Living Succulent Wreaths
Wreaths aren't just for Christmas anymore. A living succulent wreath can be an attractive addition to your garden. If you make it yourself it can be quite affordable.
Making Your Own Succulent Potting Mix
Are you ready to venture forth beyond the world of bagged cacti and succulent potting mixes? Mixing your own gives you control over weight and drainage.
Succulent Container Gardens - Book Review
Debra Lee Baldwin's second book shows us how to have a beautiful succulent garden even if we can't plant them in the ground. If you are restricted to containers because of the climate, or if your garden is a balcony or windowsill, this book will inspire you.
The Paddle Plant
The large round leaves of the paddle plant, which have their flat surface perpendicular to the ground, can add interest to your succulent garden. In the ground or in a container they are a unique accent.
