Visiting a cactus store in California, USA


Cacti, succulents, and air plants are easy to grow. They are diverse in varieties, shapes, and colors. Cacti and succulents can store water and live in desserts or hot, sunny environments. These species require little care, but still can develop and live for a long time. They are beautiful plants for home and office decorations. The plants are especially preferred by Americans because they are the symbols of strength, endurance, and longevity. For many places in the US, the growth and sale of commercial cacti require licenses or permits. We had a chance to visit the California Cactus Center in Pasadena, California, USA. The center is a large shop selling diverse species of cacti and succulents. Below are information and pictures of our visit:
