After a walk in 2012 one specific discovery changed the life of us two cacti-lovers.

That is why they decided to found a non-profit association, which stands up for the protection and reproduction of the Mélocactus intortus, commonly known as “Tête à l’anglais”.
Even though this type of plant is under protection, they could begin the reproduction of this cactus thanks to a resident of la Désirade, who makes seeds from his private collection available to them.

Therefore, the nursery is one of the top priorities of the 5 projects which are implemented by the association Cactophiles des Antilles.

And finally, with the permission of the prefecture of Guadeloupe to sell the cactus!
