A Trip to California to Hand-Pick Cactus For the SoHo Store

Sometimes there is nothing better than hand-choosing material for our customers. When our owner Julia personally curates products for the store, it makes a huge difference for our customers shopping experience. 

California Cacti

This summer, Julia set out to visit a variety of cactus farms near the San Diego, California area. Supporting American farms is part of our moral fiber! We wouldn’t buy cactus from anywhere else with all of the beautiful deserts across the country. Throughout Julia’s journey, she found a shipping partner that was willing to fill a shipping container with her various orders from different farms and drive it cross-country to New York City. It took nearly 2 weeks to arrive, but it was worth the wait.

The result: our SoHo store has the most amazing cactus and succulent varieties in all of New York. There are the most rare and unique cactus available on our plant display wall. The majority of the options are one-of-a-kind to our collection and they sell out fast! This curated collection only comes once a year – so if you’re looking for amazing cactus in New York City, shop at our SoHo location June-August for the best picks.
