Guest Author - Linda Genis
My name is Linda Genis, and I am the editor of Cacti and Succulents for BellaOnline. I’m a Master Gardener who became interested in these plants because I live in an area that frequently suffers from drought. The unusual blossoms and countless varieties got me hooked, and if you’re reading this page of BellaOnline, you must be interested in cacti and succulents, too.
Whether you’re trying to figure out how to care for the kalanchoe someone gave you, or you’ve just acquired your twentieth variety of echeveria, I hope to have something of interest for you to read each week.
The BellaOnline Cacti and Succulent Newsletter is published weekly, on Tuesday evenings, and contains information about cultivating, collecting, and enjoying these interesting plants. Do you keep your plants in containers, in the house, or in the ground? Do you buy the biggest cactus you can fit in the car, or do you start little plants from your neighbor’s cuttings? We’ll cover all these topics , and review relevant books , and throw in a few do-it-yourself projects for good measure.
