From May 24–27, the Latvian National Museum of Natural History will host "Cacti 2023", an exhibition of surprisingly diverse and interesting plants. The exhibition has been organised in cooperation with the Latvian Society of Cacti and Other Succulents.
More than 500 different species and varieties of cacti and other succulents will be on display. The end of spring is the most colourful and bountiful time of the year for flowering cacti, so visitors will have the opportunity to see them at their proudest.
Cacti are relatively easy to care for and increasingly more people are choosing to grow them. Just a few essential tips: good light, diurnal temperature variation, and a cool and dry overwintering environment are essential. The soil should consist of plenty of small stones specially suited for cacti growing, and it is not advisable to go to the trouble of using additional fertiliser, as it is the stones that contain the nutrients the cactus needs.
Visitors will be able to consult experts and obtain information on a variety of subjects such as purchasing, growing, and repotting succulents.
