Isnt it great, can compete with Kew any day
Hey Jenny. I agree 100%. Was at Kew Gardens last August and this display is better than any of the green-houses they have and way better than their South Africa/succulent display.
Good work Kirstenbosch!
This was my highlight when in Kirstenbosch last!
Cactus is New World. Think Mexico. Everything in the Kirstenbosch Conservatory is indigenous to South Africa. So no matter how many spines / thorns / prickles it has, it is still not a cactus.
good point elephant’s eye! 🙂
All cacti are succulent, but not all succulents are cacti.
That is interesting! Thanks for the clarification.
