Sources for cacti and succulent plants
One of the things we have tried to do on the cactus-mall is list good retail sources for cacti and succulent plants. We have a short list on a page
on the Cactus Mall. Unfortunately this list is probably now very out of date and was never anything like comprehensive. If you have a good source please let us know and we will add it to the list. Please do not send details of specialist cactus nurseries for this list - they are covered elsewhere and in different ways.
