A recent cactus fiend
Did you see how much it was?
I probably would have bought it…
20 bucks … I was tempted!
Hi! I live like an hour north of Austin, and I go there quite often. Could you maybe suggest the best succulent places in Austin?

Ok blogosphere, let’s hear what you have to say. I’ll get the list started!
Best places to get cacti and succulents in the Austin area:
1. The Great Outdoors
2. East Austin Succulents
3. Desert to Tropics Nursery
Austin has had some of the same winter weather that we have this year, but the Texas tuberose, likely Manfreda variegata, have fared much better than mine. Even though I lost all of the foliage, it should spring back soon.
The first of the two giants is completed and up for sale, but I wouldn’t mind if I still have him for my booth in April at the Bishop Lynch Spring Market. Check out the T-Rex to really get an idea for the scale.
The air plants that I used for the photo shoot are Tillandsia juncea - and they are a gorgeous silvery-green tinged with black.
After some research, as with the Godzillas, I realized this dinosaur was worth a lot more than I paid as an intact toy - being listed on eBay for $50! It is Aladar, the Igunadon from the Disney movie Dinosaurs. But, I much prefer him this glossy, bright red with a plant in his back!
Gotta have him? Here you go!
