[First: 1958] Warne Ref. 609.567 From the cover: “Within recent years, more and more people have been discovering the fascination of collecting and growing cacti and other succulent plants, an ideal hobby for those for whom time to look after a collection and available space in which to house it are in short supply. This book describes all the common species that can be cultivated indoors or in a greenhouse, as well as some of the more spectacular species. For the beginner, there is advice on how to start a collection, and useful notes on cultivation and propagation. The variety and often unexpected beauty of these interesting plants is illustrated by 16 full colour plates and 48 photographs in black and white.”
