Pricing

Costs vary according to the qualities of specific plants but is governed largely by the condition of the plant, size and years of growth. Many of our plants have been under cultivation in greenhouses for decades. Prices below are for the best quality plants.

Costs can vary a small degree but the price to size ratio below is a general guide. Measurements are taken from the area of greatest diameter, rib to rib, but excluding spine width. On a larger specimen this means a 400 mm plant would be about 480 mm in total spine width.

  • 300 mm - $160
  • 350 mm - $220
  • 400 mm - $290
  • 450 mm - $370
  • 500 mm - $460
  • 600 mm - $560

We sell at wholesale prices and can arrange delivery and advice on cultivation, landscaping and planting, depending on circumstances.

A limited range of other succulent and cacti are also available for sale.

Shipment

  • Plants have been sent as single items or in large group loads all over the country from Alice Springs to Hobart, Perth to Sydney and Adelaide to Cairns.
  • Particular care is taken in packing and purpose built crates are made on site for larger loads suited for fork lift machines. The crates are prepared without cost to the buyer and only a minimal cost for materials if not sourced for free.
  • These plants travel very well and can remain in crates for many weeks if required.
  • Plants are generally shipped "dry rooted" to reduce weight with the roots cleared and prepared for planting.
  • This species responds extremely well to dry root packing and will easily establish new roots without a negative impact.
  • Shipment will be done by post where possible as it is cheaper, however larger plants go by courier unless the buyer makes other arrangements for pickup.
  • Buyers are encouraged to come and select their own plants and take them with them if desired.
