Links to the CSSA homepage, Cactus Mall and various succulent plant
nurseries are listed in the American journal and newsletter as well. The
various websites also list the others as links. One does not have to be a
computer expert, only a casual browser of succulent plant websites to be
enlightened to the diversity of what is already available on the subject.
All you have to do is look.

Obviously, neither Bruno (Psycho Cactus) nor Tumbleweed bothered to check
any of them out.

I agree that the existing rec.gardens.cacti should be made into a valid
newsgroup. If it is such an easy problem to solve, then just do it. Enough
of the sniveling from the peanut gallery.
