Cactus Monday 42

I came across this great comprehansive Cactuses, Succulents & Foliage handbook recently at a second hand bookstand and thought of sharing with you all. After browsing it for 10 minutes and I decided to buy it for good and it only selling at RM15!
Love the informations and layout of the handbook. Inspirations are from every sections and parts of this book. The pictures are great and eye-catching too!
My favourite page of Cactuses.
Cob Cactus Lobivia species are so fascinating!
They are easy to grow and flowering. The lovely flowers are produced
from side of the plant, lasting only one day as a ruke.
Flowers may be yellow, orange, red, pink or cerise.

flower seasons for the features species.
My favourite page of Foliage Plant
Japanese Blood Glass
It is a fairly slow-glowing grass that makes
a fine addition to a mixed border,
where its form and color provide pleasing contrast.
(Sorry for the above presentation,
my 3 in 1 printer cum scanner is still not ready yet!)
