The cotton club

Postby Chasethorn » Fri Jun 01, 2012 2:10 am

So this is my little local place I go to to get my cacti, there are more out here but I prefer this one over many. The lady is very nice and very informative here! Located in Manitou Springs, CO. Very nice prices on everything and a large variety of many species. I love walking into this place.

My question exactly! I don't see tons of etiolation going on so either there must be some serious light getting into that place, or she turns her inventory fast.

Cool. A dream of mine is to one day have cacti in a glass house or solarium.

That dream is even more significant for a northern location.
