I'm not sure when my obsession with cacti started, but this place doesn't help. Florida Cactus is a nursery in Apopka that has every cacti and succulent imaginable. It's literally a cactus lovers dream and I can't wait to go back to get more plants for our home!
The first thing you do before walking in is check into the office. They give you a piece of paper with a map and instructions and a box to put your cacti in. It's free to get in, the only thing you pay for is the actual plant.
As you can see in the pictures, there are rows and rows of cacti. There's literally every kind you can think of. You can get colorful ones, big ones, spiral ones, circle-shaped ones, and so much more. There's no way you'll walk out of here empty handed. You can take as much time as you want to browse and return to the office at the end to pay for what you found. Their inventory includes grafted cacti, regular cacti and succulents, lithops (living stones), dish gardens, and potting soil.
The prices depend on what you get. The smaller the succulent, the cheaper it is. The prices range from $1.75 to $150. We bought a couple of small ones but definitely want to come back for the beautiful, tall cacti they have. It's the perfect home decor to make your space look more lively.
Here are some tips before going we wish we would've known. First, wear comfortable shoes because you'll be walking a lot. Also remember it's a greenhouse so it is EXTREMELY hot, especially in the Summer months. I recommend wearing shorts.
