Pereskia Intro

PERESKIA are some of my favourite plants.  At first glance, you would never guess that they belong to the cactaceae group.   But closer inspection will reveal some similarities; areoles and spines.  Altogether there are around seventeen species, all needing a warm tropical climate to grow vigorously and  survive.   The P. grandifolia is easily the most common, and will grow from a seed or cutting,  and will bloom possibly  after one or two seasons.
