Where can I buy succulent/cactus?

plant_junkie(6)July 28, 2009

I am having a hard time finding places, online or not, that sell succulents/cacti. I am particularly interested in Agave and Rebutia. I have 4 Rebutia and 3 Agave and would like to be able to expand my collection. I figure my best route would be to buy online. Ive never bought plants online before so I dont know what to expect. Any help pointing me in the direction of a good online shop would be much appreciated.

Thank you

PJ,

I've never ordered from him, but I can vouch that he's a great guy, an honest nursery man, and what a selection of Agaves!

I have not had anything to do with them myself, but Miles' To Go and Mesa Garden have good reputation, even in Europe.

I second Miles, having been the beneficiary a number of times of his plants - you're not going to go wrong there.

Check out Cactus Mall.com . The is a large list of mail order cactus and succulent nurseries on there. Of course there's always Ebay.

If there are consistently good plants at good prices on Ebay, rather than the C&S sources previously cited, I'll eat my wool toque.

See the Aloe saponaria thread - compared with the good C&S nurseries, Ebay is fraught with disappointment and overcharging, IMHO. Of course there are some folks there who know what they're doing, and at a fair price too, but they're too few.

I vote for all of them, I have purchased plants from each of them, all are ethical. Plants may be small for shipping purpose, but most will out grow the pot after the first year. Be sure to tell the dealer where you live and let them make a suggestions. The Huntington which will have the correct names, and documentations, has plants as well, most private nurseries, have things that the others don't is you want the unusual and rare. Be sure to ask for catalogues before you order, go on line and see what are the prices, educate yourself first before you buy, I agree with Jeff, also the plant names on Ebay plants are not always accurate. You can buy the same plant with three different names. but still it's the same plant just purchased with different names. I hope I made some sense. Jeff is so right. I hate Ebay. Crasulady2

Hmmmmm....I must be one of the lucky ones regarding Ebay. I have gotten most of my best plants from Ebay. Did I overpay for some? Probably but if you have to have it, you have to have it. I have also gotten some for a steal. My experience purchasing cacti from Ebay has been overwhelmingly positive and all of my major disappointments have come from so called reputable nurseries. Go figure.
