I live in Irvine and have a big cactus plant that I can no longer care for. Does anyone pick up? I started to cut it up, but it was brutal. It’s about 6 feet tall in a pot, and it doesn’t work here. Help!
Hi Jim sorry for the delay. Where can we reach you?
I would like to donate Aloe/ Cactus books from Cap & Peggy Strano’s library.
Please email me if the club is interested.
