@sunlovin there's a nursery in New Zealand called Castle Rock Cactus Company, that grows all sorts of cacti and succulents and supplies them to the hardware shops, florists and garden shops. Some I grow from seed too.
@sunlovin I tried messaging you in one of my garden photos from when I visited the cactus nursery but it wouldn't let me, so have a look in my garden photos, there are 3 from castle rock cactus, it's not a shop or really open to the public, but you can arrange to visit the place and buy plants at wholesale price.
I checked them out, what a nice place to have to add something new. There’s hardly any private nurseries here anymore, all gone out of business to the big chain stores. So there’s just common plants to buy. So that leaves me to start from seed, most prices online are too expensive. 🌞
