We have compiled some general information on the care and maintenance of cacti and succulents in the following culture notes. Use these notes as a basic handy reference and guide. Keep in mind that they don’t delve into the specifics, but rather, give a broad, general scope of cacti and succulent rearing.
For further information, you should consult your library for books on cacti and succulents. And you should observe the plants you are growing, as they will be your best teachers.
Cacti and succulents, even though they are tough, adaptable plants, do not "thrive on neglect." Rather, they exist with neglect, but thrive on tender loving care.
