I have two Christmas Cacti, one of which has lasted me two and a half years and the other six months. Having read andycharger’s opinion on his Aucuba plant (hadn’t heard of it before his op) it urged me to tell you about these tough and gorgeous plants of the South American Jungles. I am by no...

“How to grow the best cactus”

published 25/05/2001

easy to grow

slow , growers

Cactus are well known for the spines that replace typical leaves . The spines are the cacti's leaves in reality . They have evolved into the spine shape to reduce water loss to an absolute minimum. Big leaves lose lots of water , so it follows that spines lose very little . This helps the cactus...

“Hairy,spiny areoles”

published 23/01/2003

Easy to grow, fantastic flowers

some very spiny, take a while to grow

What a title, im writing about cacti, not being rude. Cacti come from the American continent, they can be divided into desert and jungle types. The jungle types live on trees as epiphytes and use them as support as like the christmas cactus. Often any thick leaved or spiny plant is called a...

fascinating, rewarding

need patience!

Personally i love cactus,I find them very fascinating plants. So much so I am the treasurer of the local club. I think people are put off with cactus because they are not sure how to treat them. The golden secret, is, although it sounds cruel you must keep them completely dry in winter they must...

“Christmas Cactus”

published 10/12/2000

Flower prolifically

Flower whenever it suits them

Christmas Cacti are notorious for not flowering at Christmas! I've had them flower at Easter (when the Easter Cactus should be flowering), through the summer, in the autumn . . . and just now and again they take me by surprise and flower around Christmas. One thing you can try to get them...

Don't need much looking after

Will take a long time to grow!

Cacti’s are very hardy plants. And although they are often overlooked as houseplants they are an interesting and varied plant. Cacti’s range from succulents and forest cacti (which need more watering then desert cacti’s and usually have almost no spines) to desert cacti, which is the species...

spiky

Hi, I don`t really know much about cacti`s but I thought that I would tell you all a story of how I got mine. I bought mine some 13yrs ago for my boyfriend for his birthday, I paid 99p for it as it was such a tiny plant at the time. I have had to replant it roughly about 5 times, to do this is to...

They look after themselves

None

Lithops are also called living stones and they live up to their name. They come in all shapes and sizes and look just like pebbles. You don't need to water them much and they pretty much look after themselves. You don't water them through the winter and spring months until about April when the...

“It must be hardy”

published 04/03/2001

Easy to keep

None

I bought a Cactus plant at Sainsburys around 4 years ago and to my surprise I have managed to keep it alive through two house moves. No I know it's not really greenfinger me it is a very hardy plant. I have seen it sometimes so dry that water actually sits on the surface for ages before it makes...
