Reviews Success with Succulents

  • Kelly Hodgkins
    Success in Succulents focuses on the more technical aspects of succulent growth and care. Rich in history, each family of succulents is explained in terms of origin, ease of growth and purpose. Indoor and outdoor care to obtain the best from one’s succulents is expressed in easy-to-follow steps covering soil, placement, food and design. I found it highly informative but definitely a reference book! I read it twice to review to be sure I hadn’...

    I received a free e-book copy of this title from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.The title of this book is self-explanatory: "Success with Succulents" is a how-to guide to caring for various species of succulents and cacti. The authors provide a general overview of these plants, and write about the basics of caring for them in various climates, both indoors and outdoors. There is a section dedicated to proper potting, followed by tips ...

    Excellent photography of different succulent species. Very clear tips and directions on propagation from both seed and cuttings. While my initial thoughts reading were “my succulent planter is all going to die” (being as I live where below zero celsius temperatures are a reality for several months of the year), as they are currently languishing in a pot on my kitchen floor with a North facing window, I realized that they haven't died yet, pro...

    Success with Succulents by John Bagnasco and Robert Reidmuller contains a lot of inspiration for keeping and displaying cactuses and other succulents indoors or incorporating them into an outdoor garden landscape. Even without spectacular flowers those plants are fascinating to look at. They come in various geometric forms, in different sizes, look great solo, as a mass planting, or in mixed arrangements. What I like about this book are the numer...

    Succulents are very trendy. The success of these plants is their colourful and their adaptability. This is a 101 guide to start cultivating these beautiful plants.
    As succulent's addicted I learnt a lot from this book, which is not super long but pretty dense, more, there is a 100 list of succulents to learn from, so you have the specific plant explanation. Very good book if you are a plant lover.Come amante delle succulente, ho imparato molto da questo libro, che era breve, ma "intenso", come dire. Inoltre alla fine ci sono 100 succulente spiegate nel dettaglio e io ho potuto approfondire quelle che posseg...

    This a great book for the plant lover. It helps define the differences between cacti and succulents, and outlines some good instructions for pest control and care for these plants as houseplants. The pictures were beautiful, and have given me something to watch out for when I go to a plant store. The back contains some popular succulents that you may see in a store, or already have. I found my Eve's Needle included and was interested to see how l...
