The cacti obsession is real

My obsession with cacti and succulents hasn't wavered and I'm struggling to get my hands on some of the rarities I desire. Here are a few of my mates.

Are there any Perth/WA members here that can recommend good/secret suppliers in WA? I've got a few good spots but I'm always looking for more :smile: with a particular interest in the rare and exotic.

 

I'm also after some large and healthy cacti for my pool area. I have large San Pedro and would like some blue variety as well as another large Candelabra and a Saguaro if possible.

Re: The cacti obsession is real

Nice to come across someone with the same obsession!
Sorry I can't help you on the supply front. Wrong state!
Naturally I didn't have a choice, because the coastal Adelaide climate is what it is, and I've no wish to be a slave to watering the garden. My previous obsession was English cottage gardens, lol. Now I do 10 minutes weeding every other month. I do have some 'regular' plants, but have cut right back to what will survive on it's own, plus the vegie patch!. The Darwinian garden.
Did you have a similar 'call to arms', or 'Eureka!' moment ? The more I use succulents and cacti, the more I love them, actually. So my sad epiphany about climate limitations became the obsession to end all obsessions. My neighbours call me the cactus queen...

Finally potted up my Golden Barrel which #wifey got me for Father's Day 😁🌵 He's got some growing to do though.
