List the Best Online/Mail Order Sources for Cactus/Succulents!

gittarheero(6)February 10, 2009

So, I did a search of the forum and a lot of people ask for sources for a specific type of plant, but I wanted to compile a list of sites that you go to for all your cactus/succulent needs!

A lot of you in the Cactus and Succulent forum grow your plants from seed or cuttings of plants you have had for a while, or you get them from your local nursery. But for those of us who don't/can't, we turn to online and mail order sources! Name your favorite sites for getting cactus and succulents.

So far I have bought from the following, and had great success.

I've had very good luck with teedeecacti on eBay. I've ordered multiple mesembs(lithops, aloinopsis[sp?], dinantheus[sp?]), an avonia, an euphorbia symmetrica and maybe another plant or 2 that I can't think of right now. Everything's been in great shape and their packaging and shipping costs are great too.

It's too early for spelling...

Caudex1 listed many of the popular and great on-line nurseries. I have extremely great success with Aridlands and Miles to Go. I agree with wondernugget with using teedeecactus on e-bay and since I collect Gasterias, deal81 offers exceptionally rare cultivars of both Gasterias and Haworthias on e-bay. She offers exceptional service on very rare and hard to get succulents, especially Haworthias. Another great source, both directly and on e-bay is (oldmancactus on e-bay).
