Please add this and tell them that Kenneth Quinn sent you
we have both been very satisfied with his service, size of plant, gifts, well packed, making good if a plant comes damaged, you don't need to ask him to back up his product, he just does it because it's the thing to do. Norma
Excellent thread on soils, additives and water conditions for Succulents and Cacti:
Good site on the South American alpine opuntias (Tephrocactus, Maihueniopsis etc)
This site has a lot of botanical information about cacti in general
Excellent site for Gymnocalycium identification

Succulent & Cactus dormancy table
I have a very large aloe vera. My husband knocked it over and broke off several very large leave. Of course I want to save the gel. But it is very tedious slitting each leaf open and scraping the inside. I was using a knife but that picked up too much green pulp so I switched to using a spoon upside down.
Does anyone have a better method? Some Suggested in Parking Lot that I freeze the whole leaves and then thaw and gel should come out much easier. Since I'm going to have to freeze it anyway so it won't spoil, I thought this might work. What do you think?
Woodspirit1 ~ I don't think this thread receives much traffic. It is used for information links. If you would go back to the Cacti & Succulent forum and start a new thread at the bottom of the page, you will probably get more viewers and comments.
Yes, please do. This thread is strictly for posting links to C&S info. If you have a separate issue you should start a separate thread. Thank you.
OK , I see now. But I'm glad I came here if for no other reason than seeing cactuspatch's photo. Beautiful!

Dudleya pictures and information about species.
Grigsby Cactus Gardens
Shoal Creek Succulents
I daresay they are not reliably Ided regarding cacti. For example:
Their Myrtillocactus geometrizans looks rather like a Stenocereus, maybe Steno griseus.
And their Carnegiea gigantea in http://www.plantoftheweek.org/week346.shtml looks rather like a Pachycereus pringlei to me.
Steven Hammer is one of my heroes. Not only a prolific hortist with fully developed skills in science and plant culture, but a quirky and talented writer who reaches out from the page and draws the reader in to share his passion for his lovely "vegetables" (his word... ha!). Besides his freely shared (and quite generous) "The New Mastering the Art of Growing Mesembs", I highly recommend his nursery storefront:
http://www.cactus-mall.com/rana/ and by request or inquiry on his private-distribution email list.
Besides his admired books already published, keep an eye out for the upcoming series of books on mesembs (adding depth and incorporating new discoveries among these specialty plants). Here's a link to the publisher, with tantalizing information about this planned series -- now in production, I believe:
I heard Steven speak at 28th Succulent Plant Symposium. He was the keynote and he was terrific.

'Mapping the Cacti of Mexico'
I just got hold of this new book. I think it is a must for all of us seriously interested in the cacti of Mexico.
This book of 128 pages (the first of a series) gives very short but important info about the habitat of about 35 genera (no Escobaria, Coryphantha, Mammillaria, Stenocactus etc yet) with their -according to David Hunt's taxonomy existing- species and their location (based on about 5700 herbarium items) which are marked on 50 geographical maps. So one can actually get an impression where and how the species of those genera are located to each other.
