The number of sites on the internet about cacti has become endless. A lot of information can be found here, but usually not the one you are looking for. To facilitate this a little bit I have compiled a small collection of weblinks, which I think to be usefull. If you know any good cacti related website which isn't listed here feel free to suggest it to me. I will post it here as soon as I have checked it. Thank you.
