Cactus and Succulent Journal from 1962

Use this forum for identification of plants and flowers found in the UK. To allow us to help provide accurate identification we need clear pictures of the whole plant, where it is growing and close up pictures of flowers, buds or seed heads if any available. It would also be useful to see pictures showing the leaf attached to the stem.

Cactus and Succulent Journal from 1962

Post by CritterMama » 24 Apr 2021, 16:05

Hello all!
I was doing some research on plants to put in my Hermann's Tortoise enclosure. From the "For What It's Worth" department ;) , I came across this gem and just had to post it here. It's titled "The Cactus and Succulent Journal of Great Britain", published in 1962. While I would definitely check its information against more up-to-date sources, it was fun to look at the pictures (black and white, of course!) and read some of the articles. Hope you take a look. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q ... lPysRY5Z9-

Oh my, you have reached the right person here! I have a special interest in interesting and unusual cacti and succulents and have a little collection of them. I don't actually belong to the British Cactus and Succulent Society https://www.society.bcss.org.uk/ but the local branch holds an annual show and I usually go to it (the display of cacti and succulents is absolutely amazing, and there are usually some stalls selling plants and I can never resist).

I shall spend many happy hours pouring over this, so thanks for sending it!

Nina
