Conservation of Cacti and Succulents

Cacti and Succulents face a variety of threats in their natural environment. The webmaster of the Cactus and Succulent Plant Mall is a member of the IOS and therefore supports its Code of Conduct with regard to the conservation of natural populations of plants.

Cacti and Succulents are easily propagated from seeds and cuttings and therefore the removal of plants from habitat is uneccessary and to be deprecated. It is extremely unfortunate that the beaurocratic implimentation of CITES regulations is having a serious adverse effect on the artificial propagation and distribution of these plants and is currently doing more harm than good to real conservation.
