I'm a cactus lover about 50 years old and I many years I have found and born and grow many strange and wonderful plants. I love Copiapoa genus, Ariocarpus, Gymnocalycium and many others. My glass house it's not very big, but very FULL. In summer I put out in my garden many big plants (like now) and in winter I seed in glass-aquarium.

I collaborate with a commercial grass house 100 km to Roma! He is a good cultivator and a good person. I give to him all my little plants (born in winter) and he give my for exchange some good and special plants.

For me this is only an hobby, because I have another real job, but for me it's a wonder time, when I can stay with my little fat plants.

I send to you 40 pics (for examples) if you like in particularly some of its plant. I have not a web site with my plants, maybe you could see other of my plants on: this place where are write: Simone-Italy.
