Los Angeles Area Cactus Show 

Were you wondering what to do next weekend? Are you going to be in Encino next weekend? You are in luck!

If your garden yearns for crazy, colorful, drought-hearty plants, the Los Angeles Cactus and Succulent Society aims to satisfy at its first Fall Sale Sept. 16 in Encino.

A variety of cacti and succulents are up for sale. (Calvin B. Alagot / Los Angeles Times)

I say, “Woot!”

Late Night Succulent Video

Thai Hybrid Adeniums are all the latest rage in Thailand and Japan.

And now they’re celebrating!

Personally I find these fluffy flowers on a desert plant to be unpleasant.

It’s the SF Orchid Show and Sale!

No, not today. It’s next weekend. This here is a friendly reminder to put it on your calender.

It may not be a fancy poster, but it is a fancy show.

And the End of the Break is Nigh

I’m back! And now there are 4 whippets at the nursery for the next 3-4 weeks, so come on by and say hi to everyone.

That’s Benjamin and Jason, of course, and visiting from Santa Cruz is Benjamin’s sister Amica, and cousin Jaxx. Jaxx is the one facing forward.

Everyone can now do a happy dance.

Cactus Radio


My favorite internet radio station and a cactus in one slick instagrammed photo. It’s a random tumblr photo of the day! And no I don’t know who that is.

Dancing with Cactus

I’m going to be serious with you here; the blog is slow this week. But I think you should have a little fun time happy dance, so we here at the Cactus Blog present to you a You Tube Festival of Dancing Cacti.

Now I wouldn’t judge the rest of them by that one. Please, don’t judge them. Have a little bit of fun time happy dance.

See what I mean? There was no reason to judge that one from the first one. Now you get it! Some fun time happy dance for all!

Boy that’s a bit of very lazy blogging on my part. Try this one.

Happy Time! That was AAWWEESSOOMMEEEEE!!! Read More…

More Weekend Blogging

Here’s another small picture for the weekend blog readers.

It’s a cactus guava mask product. I don’t know what it’s for. If someone wants to click through and read the info on the site, please leave an explanation in the comments for the rest of us. Thank you.

Weekend Blogging

I think I will do a new feature here on the cactus blog, and I’ll call it weekend blogging because it’s the weekend here on my blog.

This feature will feature many different small pictures of things. With Links.


It’s a picture of prickly pear pads for a recipe for Huaraches – Stuffed Prickly Pear Cactus Paddles. It features manchego cheese, so you know it has to be good.

Happy Weekend, all!
