About this book

Succulents and cacti make the perfect indoor plant pets. Inexpensive to purchase, easy to care for and resilient to the neglect of even the laziest of gardeners, growing these plants is virtually foolproof. Often small in size these plants are the ideal green solution for the city dweller, who has little time and only a small amount of space. However, there are so many different cultivars of cacti and succulents to collect – each with their own needs – that the watering, feeding, potting and general care can differ from plant to plant.

The Little Book of Cacti and Other Succulents features a directory of 60 of the most popular varieties of cacti and succulents to own. The entry for each of the 60 plants is accompanied by a photograph and all the essential requirements for that variety in an easy-to-follow breakdown. This includes details on size, growth, spread and flowering, along with any extra tips on care for that specific plant. When given the right care, your cacti and succulents will thrive and grow.

Additionally The Little Book of Cacti and Other Succulents includes a general care section on everyday maintenance and potting, along with tips on how to deal with common pests and disease. This is a must-have guide for all cacti and succulent lovers, who already own or want to start a collection of these hardy little plants.
