View larger image of 'Epithelantha 2011'Donati & Zanovello -  Epithelantha 2011
An interesting booklet on a cactus genus which many growers have one or more of, but probably know little about. Written by two people who have studied them in the wild as well as cultivation, they start by looking at the characteristics of the genus and their history in cultivation, and the factors they used to determine the species. Each specie and variety are then described with their history, distribution, ecology, what else they grow with in habitat and cultivation advice. Well illustrated with colour photos, mainly in habitat, and with close ups of a single areole and distribution map. Final sections cover conservation and general points on cutivation and propagation. English translation form the Italian. 2011 9 ½ x 6 ½ 64 pages
