Cactus Whisperer

Your Cactus and Succulents are a reflection of you, how you take care and nurture them will be the direct result of their survival. 

Cactus

The word "cactus" derives, through Latin, from the Ancient Greeks κάκτος, kaktos, a name originally used by Theophrastus for a spiny plant whose identity is not certain.

Succulents

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

Darrell makes his own soil. Darrell believes soil is the unsung hero for Cactus and Succulents. 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. 

Grafting

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.
