Introduction


The moment you hear the word "cactus," you immediately visualize an arid desert, with the poor lonesome cowboy riding away into the sunset on his trusty horse, singing "I am far away from home," with a buzzard eyeing him greedily, and a cactus somewhere in the background, looming over him. If you have seen this in one spaghetti western, you have seen it in all…

But cacti and succulents are just not prickly pears, and Opuntias not to be touched by Mowgli, while he is singing along with Baloo unless he wants a Paw full of spines and thorns. All over the world, people have finally woken up to the potential of cactus and succulent plants as indoor as well as outdoor beautifiers of surroundings, especially when they are planning to plant ornamental plants, which have adapted themselves down the centuries to every sort of condition, and they can survive.


This book is for those people, who have decided to know more about cactuses and succulents. Man is an instinctive collector of things, from orchids to butterflies. Once he found that all over the world, he could get more than 500,000 different varieties of succulents and cacti, he decided to add these plants to his collection repertoire. That is the reason why botanists are so fascinated with the lifestyle of these living objects, so that they can see the different natural development and changes which take place with the passing of time during the growth cycle of these particular plants.
