Information about plants
Plant information may be found here. Checkout the article on potting soils which lists recipes from several members. Collecting wild plants is generally discouraged -- see why! Siegfried Lodwig has written 2 articles (text and pictures) on growing cacti from seeds and growing/transplanting the seedlings.
The Cactus and
Succulent Society of America's e-newsletter "To The Point"
has articles about plant cultivation, individual societies, and other
interesting stories. The Winter 2021 issue is now available.
Landscaping Southwest is a program that investigates water-wise landscaping and gardening. This video looks at the La Mesa Community Garden in the first half and Ralph Peters' xeric yard and his cactus & succulent collection in the second half. It shows cacti, succulents, and other native plants (ocotillos, penstemons,...) used in landscaping and discusses their cultivation.
