As always, everything is seed grown or propagated from cuttings 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.
