An invaluable reference for beginners and experienced enthusiasts alike!
Beginners will love this book for its pictorial and concise approach to growing, grouping and caring for succulents and cacti to make them thrive. Experienced succulents enthusiasts will appreciate the sheer variety of plants described here-- a detailed field guide to over 700 varieties, from the Echeveria "Fleur Blanc" with its pink-tinged leaves to the exotic "plaid" Euphorbia obese that is so popular among collectors. Growing Succulents includes details a more casual grower wouldn't need, for instance, such as making a framed growing area specifically for your succulents to thrive and multiply.
Author Shoichi Tanabe walks you through all the steps from selecting your plants to potting, watering and displaying them. In this complete guide you will find everything from:
Advice on selecting the right plants for your environment and lifestyle
How to create attractive groupings of succulents and spaces which thrive together
Tips on ensuring the right light, air flow, humidity and watering regimen
Essential tools and soils as well as how and when to transplant your succulents
And so much more!
The plants are grouped by seasons (spring-fall or summer-winter types), when and how much to water them, their ease of cultivation, and more. Tips for cultivating each genus are included, along with plenty of advice on how to keep them healthy and vigorous.
