Abstract:

  • Ornamental Cactus Design is a hands-on workshop for learning simple cactus grafting techniques. We will create our own plant sculpture to take home. Cactus grafting, or cutting and pasting two different species of cacti is a common way to propagate the plant. This method is also used for making Moon Cactus – ornamental mini plants you can easily find in garden stores and flower markets. They are mass-produced, short lived, and are designed to look like flowers. We will discuss the history, ethics and aesthetics of this design to come up with our unique versions of it.
