xeroweb roundup -Links to other Websites on Cacti

Post by peterb »

Hey all- John's recent link to the series of amazing photographs and my occasional discoveries on the web, such as Georges Marchand's site etc., made me think of starting an ongoing "suggested web links" thread here.

It seems every time I turn around there are more websites about cacti and succulents. There are many fine links at the Cactus Mall:

http://www.cactus-mall.com/

From there I found this very unusual and interesting website probably much more familiar to our EU members:

http://www.cactus-aventures.com/

Especially entertaining on that site is the story of Joel Lode's life...wow.

This site contains a rather thorough and somewhat unorthodox overview of Sclerocactus, Pediocactus, Toumeya and Navajoa, and reflects both the expertise and the quirkiness of that controversial figure, Fritz Hochstaetter:

http://www.tribecacteaeirt.com/

The photo gallery with accompanying data is extraordinary. Herr Hochstaetter's splitting of Pediocactus simpsonii into a large number of varieties is actually why I am a huge fan of his work. :lol:

The Brazilian Cacti Project is an excellent, developing resource. It's hosted by an advertising sponsor so can be sort of annoying at times, but the habitat pictures are wonderful.

http://www.brcactaceae.org/e_index.html

That's all for now...maybe this thread will lead to people posting a bunch of sites they have learned from or enjoy visiting...

"Au Cactus Francophone" is one of my favourites. It is an encyclopedia for succulents, but I have mainly used it for cacti. There are all kinds of information, such as descriptions and cultivation, both on genera and species. Not all species and genera are described and the amount of information differs among those that are described, but I think they add more information sometimes. The language is French, but I think the pictures can be enjoyed by everybody.

This is the main encyclopedia page for those interested in families other than Cactaceae:

Hi there,

Although not quite accessible (it's not in English) this Romanian website http://www.cactusi.com/ contains some excellent photos, plant profiles and articles. Not to speak of the forum.

Cheers,

Eduart

Try this one for size, lots of useful information and great photographs, you can get English translation for most pages, but of course you can also learn to speak Russian at the same time.
