Book review: Cacti of Texas in their natural habitat by Gertrud & Ad KoningsDuke Benadom

On the cover Duke Benadom photographed this award winning Monadenium spinescens at one of the annual CSSA shows. This plant has been in Duke and Kazuko's collection for many years and it seems to just keep improving. The late Seymour Linden was our inspiration to collect members of this fascinating genus.The former series Superb Succulents featured this and a wide variety of other trophy-winning plants from numerous cactus and succulent shows. Like members of the genus Euphorbia, monadeniums can be both toxic and caustic, a bit dangerous, but beautiful and certainly worth growing!
