View larger image of '500 Cacti'Preston-Mafham, Ken -  500 Cacti
A compact book from a well known name in the Cactus world, this presents many popular and some less well known (he emphasises the "Opuntioids") but attractive and worthwhile plants one to a page. Concise details are given for each plant which is illustrated with a colour photo - almost all of the plants are in flower and unusually for this type of book a good proportion of the pictures are of plants in habitat and the cultivated plants have many which are from habitat seed or propagations of collected material so also of interest to the more experienced grower. 2007 6 ¼ x 5 ¾ 528 pages
