Plant Sources and Suppliers List

Succulent Plant Business Training Manual

There are lots of suppliers out there, but they're not all created equal. 

Some are much better and more reliable than others. 

I tried to be in that category when I sold my plants online, and doing a good job is a lot of work.

Here are some sources to get started with, and as I've had limited experience with ordering plants online from other countries due to the import restrictions on plant material, I'm relying on some of my groups to give me the low down on sources around the world. 

Thank goodness succulent growers are a helpful bunch!


Some specialty nurseries grow and ship only one kind of plant, which is a good thing. 

They are pretty much guaranteed to know their stuff, and have geared their production methods to pleasing that one kind of plant. 

A nursery that grows every different kind of plant under the sun may be good at growing perennials or shrubs which are much more forgiving of lackadaisical treatment, but succulents are another matter entirely. 

The conditions that favor rapid growth of other kinds of plants will quickly kill off succulent plants which need excellent drainage, occasional deep watering and bright light.

Other sources can be found online in forums, like All Things Plants Sempervivum sources and cactus and succulent sources and Daves Garden Website where you can search for the plant you want and find suppliers in your country. 

Don't ignore Facebook groups like the Succulent Fanatics (request to join) and many others.

Several of them have members who are eager to swap or give you cuttings of even quite rare plants, if that's your interest.

Associations like alpine plant and rock garden clubs as well as many other membership groups have seed and plant exchanges.  This also is a great way to create relationships with others who have the same kinds of interests.
