As previously stated, part of the succulents family include cacti. I have bought succulents from places such as a garden centre, been given them, however more enjoyably I have planted them from seeds. I am aware that my knowledge of tropical fish is stronger than succulents, but anything written about the plants is, as far as I am aware, correct.
Why do I like cacti? Like perhaps many others, I saw them on films and then in garden centres and due to their spines together with shape, my level of interest increased. As earlier said, I think the flowers on some of them are better than other plants, however that is not knocking the others.
Like tropical fish, I have listed them in the contents as their family groups (genus). Unlike the fish, the names are scientific names with a common name being shown if I know it.
