Cacti by Clive Innes
In their many forms, cacti flower profusely and often fragrantly. This work gives explanations of how to cultivate and how to propagate cacti by seed, cuttings and offsets, and how to control pests and diseases. There is advice on watering, light and temperature requirements and the preparation of suitable composts. Included is a directory of epiphytic and desert cacti for easy identification and notes on characteristics and origins. It details shape, flower colour and special features of a variety of cacti, all suitable for cultivation by the ordinary gardener or the collector.
