The animals are thankful for your generous contribution toward providing them food and shelter.
Happy 2017! YAY!
It's been a wet winter in Northern California which is beneficial because of the wonderful rainwater we can collect. I've been using small amounts on the winter growers. The haworthias and winter bulbs, the gasteria and the aloes are enjoying the beneficial, pure properties of this magical water.
In the greenhouse we are growing eulychnia castanea seeds in the hopes that some of the seelings will develop the monstrose qualities (varispiralis / cristata) so desirable to the collector. We've also been growing other rare and unusual varieties that we will be offering soon.
Additionally, we are looking to hybridize echeveria and aeonium to present you with more interesting arrays of colors and forms.
Absolutely Cactus can't wait to introduce to you the stunning new array of plants for your garden, succulent wall or home!
We will be offering exotic new species of aloes we are growing from seeds as well as seeds and growing tips.
In addition to a wide range of new plants, we are going to be sharing tips on ideal soil mixes, non-chemical pest contol methods and featuring youtube videos on how to propagate from seeds, offsets and cuttings like a pro.
Get excited this year - enrich the planet with beautiful plants you've grown, enjoy the bliss of watching your plants liven up your environment! Join your local cactus and succulent club. Become a member of the Cactus and Succulent Society of America -
Feel good about your contributions to preventing the extinction of endangered cacti and succulents by growing, propagating and supporting organizations intent on their preservation. It starts with you and leads to a rewarding way to ensure that these plants are enjoyed and loved by generations to come.
In closing I hope to share this love of plants and desire to preserve this amazing diversity with my first grand-daughter expected in March - on the first day of Spring!
I wish you all the best in life, health, hapiness and the joy of gardening! Leave the world a better place....
As always, everything is seed grown and we strive to give as much data and to offer plants that are healthy and beautiful.
It's more than what you see on the surface, it's a passion that begins with a handful of seeds and culminates in awesome, healthy plants raised with great soil, pure water and just the right amount of sunlight.
The inspiration is to save these amazing plants from extinction and to fuel the passion for drought tolerant, beautiful specimens for the beginner and the seasoned collector.
Unlike large scale facilities, Absolutely Cactus remains small purposefully. The human connection is important and, for better or for worse, we really try to keep in touch and provide one-on-one customer service.
We are a family business, proud to be on your mailing list and Facebook page. We have been in existence since 2005 (that's 12 years now!) and we hope you will support us for many years to come!
We hope that you will check out our selections and recommend us to your friends.
We love what we do and we sincerely appreciate your kindness and support!
