Placed an order for 5 cacti. All were in pots, large, healthy plants. All are growing and doing well after transplanting to other pots with a good cactus mix.

One of the plants was misidentified. The Mammillaria should have had large pink flowers but when it bloomed a couple months later the flowers were small and white. I sent a note to inform them of the problem and never heard back. Even an acknowledgement and apology would have been nice, but nothing. I doubt if I would order from them to add plants to my collection if they can\'t send what I paid for.

A replacement plant arrived in the mail today. In a reply to a followup email Cactus Limon said they thought shipping info was supposed to be automatically sent to me when the plant was shipped. Despite the miscommunication, response was quick and resolved the issue. I'm changing my rating to positive and I would definitely order from them again.

I have purchased succulents from Cactus Limon three times over the past year. Each plant arrived in good condition and was carefully packed. The prices are fair and I've been able to take advantage of special offers as well.

great selection, decent prices. No customer service. I've ordered twice, the first order arrived in good shape, aside from one cactus that had what looks like parasites living on it. The second shipment arrived with one cactus damaged , it looks like it was poked in shipping by one of the other cacti in the box. they were only wrapped in newspaper, and the large spines poked through the paper , damaging the other cactus. It arrived with a dime sized rotten spot that turned to a completely rotten cactus the very next day. The website asks to report shipping damage within twenty four hours. I sent an email, which they claim is the 'best' way to get in contact with them. no reply. the next day I emailed again. it has been two days since then, and still no reply. the shipping was very expensive, making my total purchase $50 for three cacti, and I only got two. Their 'guarantee' is that they will send me a replacement for anything damaged in shipping, but I'm not sure if I will get one.

I received an email soon after my original comment stating that my replacement was on it's way. Today It showed up in the mail, packaged very nicely still in the pot and with plenty of cushioning. It is a very nice looking cactus with no scars, and will make a nice addition to my growing collection.
I will probably order from them again, they have a good selection , and fast order processing. Also , they have one of the easiest websites to buy from, with no order forms to download, fill out and e-mail.

I ordered a donkey's tail and string of pearls hanging baskets for my mother. I placed the order Sunday, it was shipped Monday and was delivered to my delighted mom on Saturday. I could not believe in less than a week they delivered two of the most gorgeous baskets I'd ever seen. They were way more robust than even the photos I'd seen on the Cactus Limon website. Since it's only a week until Mother's Day I figured it would take much longer than it did. I will use them again and again for gifts and personal purchases. Just couldn't be more pleased and impressed. And they've got so many unusual specimens it won't be hard to blow my friends and family away with some impressive gifts.

Ordered several plants from them recently; order was placed on a Sunday, shipped the day after, and received on the other side of the country by the end of the week. Plants all appeared healthy, and were at least as big (a couple much bigger) as expected. Will buy from them again.

This was my third order and once again the plants were much larger than I expected. Two of the cacti had flower buds just beginning to open and all of them looked very healthy. The prices were reasonable and the shipping was very fast.

Ordered 2 cactus from Cactus Limon, and they are both gorgeous. Packed really well, and healthy looking. Fast shipping; shipped July 21st, arrived July 22nd.

Overall, it was better than I expected, and I hope to order from them again for my cactus and succulent needs.

I'm very happy with my purchase, although they need to be a little more committed to answering their emails.

I just recieved my living succulent wreath from Cactus Limon and it is beautiful and something that I could not find in the northeast. While the shiping was very high it was worth it as it was packed perfectly and arrived in three days from CA. Cactus Limon responded quickly to my email questions prior to the order and were very helpful to me . Great job!!!

I have ordered plants from this company via ebay. All have been larger and healthier than expected, and are always very reasonably priced. Once, an Pleiospilos bolusii was sent instead of P. nellii, but the seller quickly made good on it by sending the real P. nellii free of charge. An astonishing source of cacti and succulents, very, very highly recommended!!

Shipping was super-fast. Ordered last week and receive an email stating that they were away and would not be back until Feb 27. Received another email confirming my order and that it was being processed. Received another email from paypal stating the plants have been shipped. Received shipment March 1! Excellent and the plants were nice and worth the money. Have ordered before from them and had no problems!

About a week ago, I sent email asking about their policy about plants after receipt. What had happened is that I potted up the plants and about a week after that, two of them started to wither away slowly. The others were fine. Lo and behold, I should have watered sometime in that time period.

Anyway, they offered to sent me two more to replace the two that I have lost! This was done but Dave of Cactus Limon sent an extra plant. This was most welcome and made me very happy. I will, definitely, order from them again and again and recommend their establishment very hightly!!

I purchased some large, rarer plants two months ago. Pricing was fare, shipping was really fast, and the plants were well packed and healthy. I would definitely buy from them again.

I have ordered various cactus and succulents from this company on five separate occasions. Their pricing is excellent! All of the plants were healthy and packaged properly for shipping. Dealing with Cacus Limon has been a very positive experience.
