What's Ahead for Cacti and Succulents?

Guest Author - Connie Krochmal

Greetings to all cacti and succulent lovers. Here’s what you can expect in the future from this site.

First and foremost, there’ll be profiles of individual plants, such as the night-blooming cereus and the spineless prickly pear, with detailed information on their care, propagation, description, origins, and pollination.

There’ll also be articles on the different groups or kinds of cacti and succulents. Examples are the sedums and the prickly pears.

For these articles featuring plants and plant groups, I’ll either feature photos on the page or provide links where they can be seen.

What exactly is a cactus, and what is a succulent? How are they alike, and how do they differ? All of these fascinating questions will be addressed in the future.

There’s no avoiding it. Cacti can be a sticky subject. What roles do spines play, and how can we enjoy the plants without encountering these formidable specialized plant features? You’ll find the answers here at Cacti and Succulents.

It’s true that most desert cacti are well suited to warm climates. However, gardeners in cold areas can grow these plants outdoors by choosing hardy species and creating the well-drained conditions they need. Future articles will provide details on this.

Articles will focus on the nitty gritty of cacti and succulent culture, indoors and out-from plant pests and diseases to potting soil, pots, and fertilizers. There’ll be tips on using them in the landscape to deter burglars.

Cacti and succulents can really take the heat. How did these plants evolve to withstand such adverse growing conditions? This topic will be covered in the future.

Timely articles will feature a wide array of subjects—such as book reviews, cacti and succulent societies, nurseries, personalities in the plant world, new cultivars, anti-poaching laws intended to protect these endangered species, and what gardeners can do to help conserve these wild plants.
