I've ordered a couple times from GPD now. And yes, the prices are up there a bit, but so is the size and quality of the materials you receive. Shipping is lightning fast and Jerry is extremely helpful when answering questions. If you're just getting into pachycauls and succulents this may not be the place to find cheap plants to practice on. But if you've been in the hobby for a while and know what you want there's plenty of good stuff to go wild on here.

Jerry had answer to all my questions about the plant that I'd bought from him. It was shipped fast with great packaging, no damage whatsoever, all flower buds still intact, and the buds opened up in a couple of days.
The price may seem steep, but you are getting a really nice sized, healthy speciment plant.
I've only ordered from this nursery once, but I know I'll be back.

Jerry is a world of knowledge and friendly, We have purchased directly from him in the past, and could not be happier! The amount of rare and and beautiful plants await you, as will Jerry, We went in the rain again on Mother's Day with family, he wanted very much to close due to increment weather, but waited for us to show up late with a smile on his face. I recommend this nursery wholheartedly, especially for his fantastic collection of Caudiciforms!!!! We all felt his prices were fair, and his plants extremely healthy. Go no further, you ought to see his private collection so beautifly displayed, some he has propagated, and crossed himself. A great find and adventure! Thank you Jerry,

Their plants are very expensive and not worth the price.

Buying plants from Jerry Wright is so much fun, and so easy that you have to be careful or you'll go broke. I purchase a lot of succulent plants online and I could not recommend anyone more. You will find an extensive listing of some of the rarest plants available anywhere. I have experienced about a seven-day turn around on everything I have ordered jerry also host a study group on succulent flora that you can join via his web site. There are over 300 members world wide providing information on cultivating these rare plants. Jerry is personally involved in these discussions every single day. I have continually been more impressed with the plant that arrived on my doorstep than the picture on his web site that originally prompted me to purchase it. If rare caudiciforms and thick stemmed pachycauls are your fancy, go no further than the Great Petaluma Desert. You will not be disappointed!
