    Round 6 in "How do I keep my darn succulents alive?!" After reading 6 books (many with excellent internet resources), there's a decent chance I might be able to succeed. Already, my green echeveria has propagated through a cutting and atop a stem! And all the others seem to be fairl...

    The first chapter alone got me - 'What are cactuses and what are succulents?" -- something I had wondered myself (although I thought it was 'cacti'?). There is a great explanation in this beautiful book, and it includes cultural uses which is something I find fascinating. I was happy t...
