“If you kill a cactus, you are a bad person…”

Favourites: My favourite plants are cacti and succulent plants. I like it Astrophytum, Copiapoa, Lithops, Mammillaria and Gymnocalycium.


Rafa says: 

My cacti collection is in a greenhouse. In this space, I can control the principal parameters: temperature, humidity and ventilation. More or less watering the pots in summer once a week, and in winter once a month. Only use compost on a cactus once a year, in beginning of spring. If you follow these basic guidelines, cacti are strong plants and they can produce beautiful flowers.

Rafa’s tips: 

You must study the plants well: origin, biology and above all observe them. If you kill a cactus, you are a bad person, I’m joking…
