Cereus flagelUformis, Rhipsalis, and Epiphyllums on their own roots, flourish well and are exceedingly attractive. But the best of all are the Phyl- looacti; these are without spines, grow vigorously, and produce an abundance of blooms if they are given a sunny window and the necessary amount of water. Cactuses generally are subject to insects and fungous troubles. One of the most common pests is a scale in- sect. The safest way to rid the plants of these is to clean them off with a small brush which has bristles of only moderate stiffness. The mealy bug may be easily disposed of by dissolving 5 grams castile soap in hot water, and adding IK quarts of alcohol; then add 100 grams of fusel oil; apply with a very fine spray. James Gubney.
