Reseña del editor:

Cacti and succulents are guaranteed to invoke a response or an emotion. They are simply too dramatic not to be noticed and admired. "Cacti and Succulents" will familiarize the reader with the fascinating world of cacti and succulents, and introduce a selection of easy-to-grow species suitable for the beginner, as well as some of the more difficult and desirable species that make up this fascinating group of plants. Cacti and succulents differ vastly in shape and size: some, such as the mighty saguaro (Camegiea gigantea), can reach a height of over 20m, while others are no taller than a few stacked coins. Cacti increasingly find favour amongst city dwellers, regardless of whether they have large gardens or a balcony or patio available for a few choice plants only. As a result of their often bizarre morphologies, cacti have acquired a large worldwide following of dedicated collectors and growers.
