Palm Springs has some nice desert trails.

This is the story of one of them, the Tahquitz Canyon Trail.

Opuntia basilaris – Beavertail

Cylindropuntia acanthocarpa – Buckhorn Cholla

And another Opuntia basilaris! Beavertails for everyone!

Cryptanthus zonatus – I don’t know the cultivar name for this one, but it’s probably one of the many C. zonatus varieties.

These are semi-epiphytic, so you can grow them with very little soil. We’re growing this lovely little bloomer in a big terrarium.
