Ruthie im sure he waters all by hose and not very often another question to ask him whether he waters certain plants more than others. I also noticed that he grows in nearly all sand.

That has got to be the finest cactus collection I have ever seen. (I think that I'll have to go on some sort of a pilgrimage to see it in person.) Thanks for putting up those amazing photos!

Obviously Lester knows a thing or two about growing cacti. It was interesting to learn that he uses so much sand in the potting mix.

I was wondering what kind of shelter he provides for his plants. From the photos it looks like a large 'alsynite" clad shed or greenhouse. I'm curious because I was thinking of giving my cacti some kind of cover - they're just out in the elements at the moment.
