Awesome Specimens

I'm still fairly new to the succulent collecting hobby, but I have been extremely happy with all of the specimens purchased from Planet Desert. They are obviously well cared for, packaged very nicely with little to zero damage to plants, and a few of the species I've purchased have produced flowers for me already! Strongly recommend.
