DIY: Southern California's Succulent & Cactus Mecca!, a photo by Sanctuary-Studio on Flickr.
The Cactus Ranch isn't as expensive as our local nursery but they aren't as cheap as Home Depot either. That said, neither of those places come close to having as wide of a variety as the Cactus Ranch. Most of the plants I purchased were between $2 & $4 each. Although I did splurge on a more unusual species (in a 4" pot) which was $7.50.
