Pleasant Surprise

Cacti from Planet Desert are always efficiently packaged in a way that protects the plants and prevents the gravel from spilling. The 'Lobivia acanthoplegma v. roseiflora' I received already had a nice bud on it and a few days later it bloomed into a beautiful dark pink flower with a white center. Upon further inspection, another bud is on its way, which just goes to show how healthy the plants from Planet Desert are! Very happy with my first Lobivia.

Amazing cactus. Great Mother's Day Gift

I bought 4 cacti from this website for Mother's Day gifts for my mom and 3 "grandmas" as an alternative to flowers. It went over great with everyone (except for the fact that I forgot to get one for my aunt), and the cacti all looked spectacular! Great packaging—I feel like the plants could've survived the laziest, clumsiest USPS person in the world. I will absolutely be purchasing from here again (and actually already have). I think this particular cactus is actually the "devil's pincushion" species, but it looks absolutely awesome and was the most inexpensive one I bought. Super satisfied with my purchase.
