This plant is a good size, not clumping yet but I'm sure it will soon. I will be ordering from this company again.

Beautiful, healthy, quality cactus!

I don't know where to begin! This is AMAZING! I will start by saying I collect cactus. Out of many online experiences that went incredibly bad I had lost all hope to finding a good online shop. NOT ANYMORE PLANET DESERT TO THE RESCUE! it quickly arrived. they wrapped so well not even a pebble rock was out of place! These cactus were stunningly beautiful!!! My photos won't do them justice! Some had beautiful flower stems just ready to open! Amazed! I'd give a million stars if I could! ❤️ The newest, forever Planet Desert top fan!!!! Happy growing! ❤️
