Thank you Mark. That is sure a lot of information. And for free yet. I only wish you could find Sansevieria like that. That is my favorite plants. Books are scarce and expensive.

I'm trying to figure out an easy route for folks to the pictures on this site - it is shared site between MOBOT and the Desert Botanical Gardens and has pretty definitive picture ID's for the cacti/ succulents. It isn't a very fast site, so when you're entering a name you want to search on, be sure that it actually "took" the letters you put in. If it didn't, slooooowwww down, lol. Additionally, when you search, I would be as general as possible, i.e. "Ferocactus" instead of "Ferocactus grusonii var. ....."


- http://www.livingcollections.org
- Enter "Desert Botanical Gardens" by clicking on its name
- In order to see pictures (and, admittedly, it is kind of sparse as of yet) click on More in the upper left hand navigation bar.
- In the Taxon box, enter the name. Yep, it's gotta be latin, at least at this part of the site. This is where I suggest being general.

In the end, only kindness matters.

Science is not the answer, it is the question.

It's good for when you need a positive ID, at least.

You are so welcome, Greg!
