Not all succulents are cacti, but all cacti are succulents! Cacti (or cactuses) are spiny succulents, and there are approximately 1750 different species divided into 127 genera, of which all but one species is native to the continental Americas.
In this Shop category, Living Desert Plants offers a range of cacti, including famous plants like Echinopsis pachanoi (San Pedro cactus), Lophophora williamsii (Peyote), and Gymnocalycium mihanovichii (Chin cactus), or rare cultivars like Astrophytum ‘Kikko’ and Astrophytum ‘Fukuryu’. We also have a few mutant plants, including variegated, crested and even monstrose cacti. If you are looking for a cactus that is out of the ordinary, then this is the place to find it!
We love cacti because of the wide variety of different shapes, sizes and colours. Every plant is unique in its own way, and there is a species or cultivar that will suit anyone’s taste, even if you don’t like spines!

We ordered plants from LDP through Harry Lewis a while back. We were very happy with our parcel. Reasonably priced. Very helpful as well. I can recommend Living Desert Plants.
