Very nice specimen
Nice cactus. Shipped quickly and very well packed as usual from Planet Desert. Excellent communications also.
all plants from Planet Desert
All the plants I ordered, about 15 or more were excellent. Your plants are a bit more expensive the some of the other mail order companies, but are bigger & healthier.
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! ❤️
Tiny Sulcorebutia zavaletae
Ordered this as a Christmas present for my wife. I even asked that they choose the best one for her. Took more than a week to arrive in excellent packaging! However, my wife and I were so disappointed when we saw a very tiny cactus unlike the ones featured. Is this the best they got? Seriously?
Great plant, fast and easy transaction
Great looking plant, looks healthy, arrived fast. As usual, great transaction. Will be back to purchase more as soon as I figure out where else I can have plants in my house :)
