A trusted source for scarce cacti and interesting succulents. Here you can find a diverse selection of desert cacti and mountain dwellers alike. We carry live cacti, seeds, and limited supplies like our signature premium cactus soil, pots and germination kits. Our digital showroom usually has the most up to date information, but if there is a cactus you seek, do not hesitate to contact us, as not everything is always listed. Our greenhouse is located in Southern Ontario, where all of our cacti are grown and propagated. In our greenhouses we grow many species of specialty cactus not available anywhere else in Canada. Having a close cooperation with a network of specialist cactus propagators across the country we offer many species of cactus and succulents which are impossible to find elsewhere. These hardy plants are a pleasure to grow and can be very rewarding. Our office is conveniently located in Toronto, Ontario where some prepaid web orders are available for pickup. Be careful, because once you start collecting these special treasures, you may not be able to stop.
Most cacti, like Astrophytum or Lophophora stay relatively small. While others, like the columnar Trichocereus species can grow to massive proportions Trichocereus Pachanoi, Bridgesii, or Peruvianus grow large columns and can grow to incredible heights. Cacti are variable in body shape displaying an assortment of shapes, supination, and flower colour. Many cacti are very easy to grow for beginners. Best of all, cacti reward us by displaying striking flowers in a variety of shades for the intrepid grower.
The winter hardy varieties we offer can resist freezing temperatures during the colder months making it possible to leave them outdoors year round throughout much of Canada. For those who prefer succulents, we offer a few also.
If you as a beginner find it difficult to decide what to start with, and need some advice, just ask for help, we would love to help guide you into something that will keep you happy for years to come.
