Cacti and Succulents Endangered

I was sad to read that quite a few species of cacti and succulents, many of which I've featured on this blog, are endangered because of habitat loss, climate change, and poaching.
Ah, Babytoes!

You can read about it here:

Always buy plants and seeds from reputable dealers who care about the plants and the environments they evolved in. Make sure they have the correct CITES certificates for what they sell. That way, our grandchildren can enjoy these beautiful plants, too. Happy gardening, and join me in feeling grateful for our wonderful cacti and succulents!

  3. This is lovely! I have been wondering around your blog and it seems that baby toes would bloom whenever they are happy! No season whatsoever? :D You're one fantastic baby whisperer!
