Review by wookiemonster
This book is geared towards the avid enthusiast as opposed to me, who has a cactus and three succulents. The horticultural advice is more for people growing cacti and succulents for show and to have a greenhouse botanical garden, as opposed to a few houseplants. Howev...er, it is still a thorough resource of the different types of cacti and succulents, with plenty of full-color photos. My rating is based on how useful it was to me, but if I was a horticultural enthusiast, I'd probably give it a full 5 stars.
