Plant Profiles (C&S)

ROM Plant profiles - written initially for Cactus Romania ( between 2006 - 2008. In mid 2009 Cactus Romania has changed (for a short time) the skin and took also a different, more pragmatic but also more simplified approach; however, I have decided to keep the same structure of the plant profiles for my website. All plant profiles dated 2006 - 2008 have been published on Cactus Romania, the more recent ones you can find only here:

Why Ninety Mile Beach?
You might wonder whether the title of this website – Ninety Mile Beach – was a deliberate mismatch with the content; otherwise why on earth would one use this title when (except for very few photos) you can’t find anything about Ninety Mile Beach here? Truth to be said – Ninety Mile Beach is a very special place on Earth anyway and there is no need of extra emphasizing its uniqueness, however, not by me. But this fine piece of nature has also a particular meaning for me as this endless beach was few years back – in a fully unexpected way – a place of spiritual revelation and complete freedom – this is the fact I have to acknowledge. This website I have started in late 2007 has largely outgrown its original purpose and I have also abandoned some of my initial projects because of other things that have caught my attention. Oh well, that’s who I am, I guess. At this stage this website is not only mirroring my past and present points of interest – especially cacti and other succulent plants and New Zealand’s nature with focus set on coastal habitats and plant naturalization – but is also a tribute: I have truly discovered my love for nature only since moving to New Zealand. This website is not intended to be eye-catching, but to provide useful information instead. It is actually a collection of texts in English and Romanian with no particular theme – from well over 100 plant profiles to travelogues to succulent plant naturalization to my recent Rangitoto Island obsession to other texts celebrating New Zealand’s nature and habitats and pretty much anything in between - accompanied by a small but varied photo gallery, and nothing else. External links will open PDF files containing illustrated articles you can view or download for personal use. I have saved fancy website designs for later hoping that you’ll enjoy it as it is. Some texts have been already published on other websites like (formerly known as Cactus Romania ), Aztekium and International Crassulaceae Website, or in magazines like Kaktusy I Inne, Aztekium, New Zealand Cactus and Succulent Journal, and Avonia; some other you won’t find anywhere else. Oh, I have almost forgot – there is one page though (I trust you will discover which one in worst case by trial-and-error) for which a minimum IQ of 10 is strongly recommended to visitors at all times (or alternatively a good sense of humour, but this rarely comes with a lower IQ). As they say - safety first! Eduart Zimer.
