Cactus Whisperer Darrell J Dunten - States your cactus and succulents are a reflection of you, how you take care and nurture them will be the direct result of their survival. Darrell has an amazing ability to convey nature with the teaching of Jesus. 

The Desert

The desert is the perfect example of the fit will survive. It is constantly recycling life and death. 


The word "succulent" comes from the Latin word sucus, meaning juice, or sap. Succulent plants may store water in various structures, such as leaves and stems. 

Desert Soil

Soil is the unsung hero for all vegetation Often regarded as just dirt, it takes a back seat to the glamorous flora of a garden but it's always hard at work below the surface. Just like our health. 


Grafting is the process of joining two plants together (an upper portion and a lower portion) to grow as one. The upper portion of the plant is known as the scion, which is attached to the lower portion known as the rootstock.

Romans and Greeks invoked the concept of an external creative "daemon" (Greek) or "genius" (Latin), linked to the sacred or the divine.
