Cacti: Knowing, Growing, Sowing, and Showing By Jackson Burkholder
Jackson Burkholder is a professional horticulturist who has been growing cactus and succulent plants for as long as he can remember, showing his first cactus in the CCSS Show when he was in the first grade. Currently, Jackson is the owner of Precision Cactus Growers Ltd., a nursery specializing in cactus seed production. He also continues to be involved with the CCSS as the chairman of the annual plant show and also as a show judge.
The presentation he will give this month will focus completely on the Cactus Family. He will start out by describing the evolution, taxonomy, and unique morphology of the Cactaceae, as well as many of the modifications that make the family so distinctive. The second part will cover cultural information about how to care for adult cactus plants as well as how to propagate them from methods like seeds and cuttings. The presentation will end by briefly discussing how to prepare them for entry into Cactus and Succulent shows.
