Mixed Succulent Pots are everywhere – we have them in every size, every color, every style. Handmade pots too? You bet. Brightly colored Chive brand cubes? Oh, yes. We’re not fancy, but the mixed pots are.

Agave “Splendida” is our newest cultivar, ready now in 4″.

Sedum “Carnea” is the northern California native seaside sedum that grows in the rocks and on the cliffs and among the wind-blown grasses.

Another Cal native? Yes! But Dudleya lanceolata comes from the SoCal mountains and cliffs. No NoCal sites at all. Unless you plant it yourself right here.

Echeveria agavoides is usually seen in one of it’s many cultivars, often featured here, but this is the true species. Look close, see it for all it’s uncultivated gorgeousness. Sweet.


Christmas Cactus are in and they’re blooming so it must be Christmas! We set our clocks by them.

Myrtillocactus “Elite Crest” is back out with our new crop – they’re so hot. Is it really that bluish-purple? Some are indeed! I did say they’re so hot, you know. What did you thik I was lying? I was photoshopp[ing the plants right in front of your eyes to trick you? Hah! maybe.

Rebutia pulvinosa is tiny little pebbles all stacked around each other. That is at least until spring when the flowers come out and they’re bigger than the plant and hide it completely.

Fat Polaskia chichipe plants in 4″ pots are spiny and full of life.


Pelargonium ferulcaeum is hardy outside in shady locations and will grow just as well indoor. If you want to keep that perfect look you might want to try it indoor first.

Euphorbia tubifera x didieroides is a little hybrid with some big leaves.

Gorgeous new planters in new sizes from W/R/F Lab

Large handmade planters in speckled colors from Rachael Pots.

Gemstones are working it. Like these tumbled Blue Iolites.

Toys? At Cactus Jungle? Of course. Some would say this is Bigfoot. Others prefer Sasquatch. Either way you’ll say yes!

Dinosaur Planters! High quality porcelain. Easy to plant – let us do it for you!


Dracaenas – also known as Corn Plants, are great as indoor plants, not too much light, not too much water. Lots of leaf shapes and sizes. This one is Dracaena “Massangeana”.

Orchids! Tropical varieties and Moth Orchids like this Phalaenopsis.


Leucadendron “Safari Sunset” gets red really really red in winter. These are looking very fine. Totally ready to plant. Vertical shrubs that have small cone flowers.

Leucadendron “Blush” is looking amazing in the sun and wind, like the leaves are wavy but they’re not! It’s the sun! You have sun too, you can duplicate this effect.

California’s own native verbena, Verbena lilacina “de la Mina” is wild leaves with clusters of small lavender-pink flowers.

Penstemon “Glitterbelle” is the latest new pink flower. Reliable and late fall blooming too. Hmmm, there must be something wrong. No, nothing wrong. These are just that good.


Aloe mudenensis hybrid has really sweet color in lots of sun, but not all day hot sun. Deep red blush just starting on those leaves.

Dorstenia gigas is rare and we have a whole crop that are leafy and branchy.


Cereus fa. Monstrose is also known as the Christmas Tree Cactus, and we do have larger plants available if you wanted to decorate it.

Agave “Quadricolor” only gets it’s 4th color, the “Quad” in “Quadricolor”, in full sun. The 4th color that is not quite visible yet here? It’s hot pink.

Echeveria “Purple Pearl” seems identical to our regular Echeveria “Perle von Nurnberg” but they tell me it is a different cultivar, completely separate. Totally unrelated. At least that’s what the patent holder wants you to think. Wake up! Don’t do what they tell you! Free the cultivars!

Mammillaria prolifera is many fuzzy small balls, practically a natural christmas ornament all by itself.

Matucana polzii is a dense clump of stems, native to South America. Tall tubular red flowers.

Rhipsalis sulcata is one of the long draping jungle cacti from the caribbean.

Crassula “Shark’s Tooth”.

Echeveria pulidonis is not very exciting today, so here it is at the very bottom of the email. Fun times down here at the bottom, a lot of drinking goes on, a lot of chips and salsa, sometimes very hot salsa. Spicy!
