A Trip to Florida Cactus Inc. – Where to get succulents and cactus in Central Florida
Succulents and cactuses seem to be all the rage nowadays, but trends aside these are such beautiful and low maintenance plants to care for, that why wouldn’t they be all the rage?
When I think of succulents, I think California, Arizona, and Texas as prime areas to see them growing in the wild, but just because those are the main spots doesn’t mean we can’t have them here in Florida.
I remember when I was growing up in Hialeah, we had a giant cactus outside of our home. It seemed so out of place with our neighbors palm trees, but I loved it. Hence when I moved to Central Florida and became a homeowner I felt the need to have my own cactus and succulents around the home. Now once Jorge and I discovered Florida Cactus, Inc. on Instagram, we immediately planned a trip to head over and grow our garden.
We made the trek to Apopka on a weekday (please note they are open Monday through Friday only from 7am to 4:30pm). Once there we immediately fell in love. There are about 8 or 9 greenhouses full of succulents. I mean the options are endless. You will find some rows/boxes/plants sectioned off in pink tape and that means those have already been purchased. But chances are you will still find what you are looking for AND what you didn’t even know existed.
Only advice would be to dress for warm weather since the greenhouses can be very hot. Take some water, and enjoy.
This is the place where you get the most options and for the best price we’ve seen around in the area. And it is very instagrammable. So what’s not to love! We sure loaded up on a lots of plants that we now have inside and outside of our home. You’ll be sure to find something that you’ll love. And it’s a great place to make a little trip/date out of.
