I am Leo Martin, and I live in Phoenix, Arizona, USA.

I grow a lot of different plants, especially many cactus and other 
succulents. I like to grow from seed where possible.

I have gardened in Southern California, where I grew up and got my 
bachelor's degree at UC Irvine; St Louis, Missouri; and Arizona. Stints 
in San Francisco and Seattle for further schooling involved only indoor 

 From my interest in S African succulents, I began growing some bulbs, 
and have produced some Lachenalia seed. Over the past few years I have 
planted several dozen pots of winter-growing bulb seed, mostly from 
Silverhill, but also from the IBS and friends and family in California. 
Some came up right away and some have straggled up over the years. Some 
still aren't up. None have bloomed yet.

I also have some summer-growing Ammocharis, Boophane, Crinum, and 
Gethyllis from seed, none of which have bloomed yet.

I am involved with the Cactus and Succulent Society of America and the 
Central Arizona Cactus and Succulent Society.
