Astrophytum purchase

The cactus seems very healthy and arrived well-packaged on time. I would have given it 5 stars but the plant turned out to be much smaller than expected. I have bought other cacti here and in general they are healthy plants. I would recommend.

Nice!

I got exactly what I ordered! I was a bit hesitant to order cactuses by mail, but they packed carefully, with no problem. Very good selection too
