Description


An inspiring and indispensable small format guide to growing and caring for cacti and succulents

With fans far and wide, cacti and succulents come in myriad shapes and sizes too. These firm favorite of Instagram influencers are perfect for adding greenery indoors, and can add structure and detail to outdoor spaces as well. Smaller plants are companions for 'generation rent', since they are easily moved from place to place. Generally low-maintenance, being "plant mom" to one or two of these tiny plants often starts a life- long fascination, and an ever growing horde.

The Little Book of Cacti and Succulents is an inspiring and indispensable guide to growing these fascinating plants. Detailed Plant Profiles are divided into chapters according to style and shape, from beautiful trailing plants to intricately formed rosettes. At the beginning of the book, you'll find practical advice on getting started, caring for the plants through the year and troubleshooting to deal with common problems.

You can also discover how to grow your collection using various propagation techniques with step-by-step guidance.

Cacti and succulents provide year-round interest for very little input, and caring for their fascinating forms is an enchanting hobby. Full of beautiful photography and sweet illustrations, The Little Book of Cacti and Succulents is an encouraging and down-to earth guide to these weird and wonderful plants.

A longtime collector and owner of two fine art galleries, Alterman wanted to create a user-friendly book intended not only to educate collectors and enthusiasts about this art but to help train one's eye.
