One of the species is Parodia cactus. Spherical tuberous shape. It blooms from the first years. Needles are bristly or hooked, red and yellow. They love the bright sun. Watering can be once every two weeks. In winter - once a month. Cactus Parody is not against spraying, even in winter. But not often.

Another type of amazing cacti - ripsalidopsis (forest cacti). This small evergreen shrub came to us from the rain forests of South America. Someone might know him as a "cancer neck." The shoots of this flower are flat or ribbed pale green. If you choose a brightly lit surface, the shoots may become reddish. The most remarkable thing about this cactus is the flowers that appear on the tips of the leafy segments. The flowers are widely disclosed with a diameter of 4 cm.

Ripsalidopsisy have several thin spines on compacted stems, which have several joints. Red or pink flowers like diffused light. The size of the flower is usually no more than 15 - 20 cm in height and width.

Watering should be provided once a week. In hot, dry times, ripsalidopsis enjoy spraying every 2 to 3 days.

Often, Ripsalidopsis is confused with a Schrumberberger, an equally beautiful flower, but in the first one the flowers are radially symmetrical, and at Schrumberberger the beveled corollas. Also ripsalidopsisy bloom in spring, and Schlyumberberts - in winter.

Surprisingly, this flower needs 12 hours of darkness in early spring to be healthy. The exotic view of the cactus is able to attract attention always, and during the flowering period - all the more.

Plants of the genus Sansevieria

Sansevieria or in the people - "Teschin language", "pike tail." No extreme conditions are terrible for such a "monster". Moreover, it seems they even like him! Once in my school, flowers were handed out from the class for the summer holidays, and I got this one. Several leaves were broken (on the eve it was demolished by a draft), the pot was nadbed, the roots were already visible, and I found a buried gum in the soil. So he stood for several months. Surprisingly, the flower while it lived beautifully and bloomed. Caring for Sansevieria is very simple. Do not forget to just dust the leaves and water once a week. It is also better not to pour water into the outlet center, otherwise the flower may rot. "Teschin tongue" propagated by leaf cuttings, rhizomes, side shoots.
