Sarah Hearts Orlando: Florida Cactus Inc Succulent Farm
I adore succulents for two reasons: 1. they come in such an array of interesting shapes and colors and because 2. they are really really hard to kill.
I like to convince myself that I have a green thumb but I tend to, ok almost always, ultimately forget to water my plants and I’m only left with my little herd of succulents throughout the house and around the yard. So when I first heard about Florida Cactus Inc., a succulent only nursery outside of Orlando, I knew I had to check it out!
Amalie and I went on adventure to Apopka, which is about 35 minutes outside downtown Orlando. We visited the nursery right at noon…in the summer… which I don’t recommend! The nursery is made up of 8 or so green houses full of succulents. Their friendly staff gave us a map which also includes their retail prices.
They have just about every type of succulent you’d ever want in just about every size. They also have ones I’ve never seen before! The smallest starters are in about 2″ pots for a few dollars and the prices increase from there. They are only open on the weekdays, so on your next day off you should definitely plan a trip.
