My son loves cacti.  Actually, he loves flowers and plants and pretty much everything outside, but he’s particularly fond of cacti.  I bought him a small cacti planter that he loves and takes care of.  FYI, cacti planters aren’t cheap.  I couldn’t believe how much it cost.

The thing is, there are all kinds of succulent gardens you can plan and create.  We break this collection up into the different types which include outdoor, miniature, pots and planters and succulent terrariums.
