I’ve purchased quite a few succulents so I thought I’d share some of my findings with you! Buying succulents can be a lot of fun, but depending on where you live it can be hard to find them.

Fortunately with their rising popularity I’m finding that many more nurseries are starting to carry them. If you are in California, or an area that is warm for the majority of the year, it should be pretty easy to find a nearby nursery that sells succulents. That said, I’ve also been amazed at how many places I’ve found to buy succulents here in Utah.

My all time favorite place to buy succulents online is Mountain Crest Gardens. I may be a little biased because they sell a huge selection of cold hardy succulents and that’s the only thing I can grow year round outdoors. However, they also have a great selection of tender succulents as well.

My favorite thing from Mountain Crest is their wholesale succulents. Anyone can buy them and they are such a great price! If you don’t mind getting a mixed variety instead of specific plants you pick out, this is definitely the way to go.

Another amazing source for succulents is Leaf and Clay. They always have a great collection of succulents and cacti available and frequently stock a limited number of rare succulent varieties. If you’re looking for something new or unusual, this is the shop for you!

I’ve purchased succulent cuttings online from The Succulent SourceDaniel’s Specialty Nursery and from Succulent Gardens. The Succulent Source has high quality plants that are sure to live up to your standards. The group from Daniel’s Specialty Nursery had a wider variety of plants. The cuttings from Succulent Gardens were a little smaller, but great for a wreath or living picture.

I’ve also discovered a wealth of succulents online at Etsy.com of all places! There are several stores that have a great collection of plants. Some of my favorites include: The Succulent Source (great for wedding favorite and cuttings), The Succulent Garden (a wide variety of bare root plants), Altman Plants (good for more rare varieties), Succulent Beauties (a variety of sizes and shapes of succulents), and Succulent Babies (a variety of succulent species).

You can also buy arrangements online too! I highly recommend I Dream of Succulents and Vertical Flora.

Locally, I went to Cactus and Tropicals and found a great variety of plants. The prices weren’t bad, but I didn’t feel like they were an awesome deal either. I got this smaller guy for $2.95 and the amazing Echeveria Blue Curls for $12. I’d been looking for the Blue Curls for a while so I decided it was worth it since it was pretty large and healthy.

I visited another nursery and found these pots of Echeveria Afterglow for just $5! I was so excited because they had a bunch of smaller offsets on them, plus the huge one in the center. This is by far the best deal I’ve found on large succulents. So, check our your local nurseries and see what you can find!

If your local nursery doesn’t carry succulents, you can also check Lowes and Home Depot. I’ve found a surprisingly good selection there and the prices aren’t too bad. Generally they cost about $3-4 for a small pot. I’ve heard people say these are generally dying or diseased, but the few I’ve purchased here have been great so far and they are going on a year now.

I would love to know where you all buy most of your succulents! Also, check out my post about what to look for when buying succulents!
