Here are some practical tips on buying and cultivation :

There are cacti and succulents wholesalers at the show , some of them have stalls within Quezon Memorial Circle or at Araneta Garden Center in Cubao .

cacti and succulents prices may differ depending on quantities, species or varieties.  Most of the dealers were from Baguio/ Benguet area . There are some which sourced their plants from Mabalacat , Pampanga  or have their own backyard garden and thus they are more warm tolerant compared to the Benguet / Baguio dealers.

Try to change the soil/ media if the cacti and succulent come from Baguio/ Benguet area , a lot of them are grown in greenhouses .

Try to attend daily lectures or seminars conducted by leading cacti and succulent enthusiasts. They are a big help to budding collectors.

Try to surf internet and read books to know about the simple cultural techniques , the most common for collector is to over water these plants.

For those who does not want to spend a penny on the cacti , There are a lot of common and ordinary cacti which are grown in almost neglected state . Some of the stems can be readily propagated without any difficulties .
