Astrofitum, Mammillaria, Pereskia, Saguaro, Espostoa, Browningia, Coryphantha…
Only unaware (such as I am) people feel confused and bewildered, hearing such "incomprehensible" words. For lovers of flowering plants, they are like a balm for the soul, because all of the above are cacti. These more than unique plants have tons of admirers. Someone gets a cactus, believing in its beneficial effects on humans; another one perceive the plant almost as a pet, and others just enjoy the exotic beauty and uniqueness of the plant.
The variety of cacti is huge: the family has about 127 genera, and it is divided into 1750 species. Cacti unite people in numerous communities, flaunt on glossy covers of thematic magazines, take part in exhibitions and even become a subject for discussion at specialized conferences. Perhaps this excitement is caused by the amazing features of plants, which owners of them share delightfully.
The main value of the plant is its ability to absorb negative energy, process it and exude positive. Thus, comfort and harmony are created in the house, and in the office premises, in addition to calmness and concentration, there is a reliable protection from office radiation.
Flowering of cacti are treated reverently. As inn most cases this flower blooms infrequently, this event is considered to be a very good sign. It is interpreted as an omen of something beautiful and long-awaited, up to a little bundle from heaven. Or at least, the fact that the plant is comfortable in the chosen place and it likes the environment.
It is possible to believe or treat the above facts with a smile, but the pot in which a cactus lives is much more important. First of all, for the plant itself. A cactus should feel comfortable and happy. I hope that it is for this purpose that non-standard flower pots are created, which are presented in the collection.
