Cool fruits. Are the plants seedlings, can you post?

Yeah, I can post. The dragons and opuntia can go out standard mail no problems, but the others would be better sent express.

Generally, I post fragile plants in cardboard tubes. Safest method in my experience.

Rather than me uploading (and resizing pics, boy isn't that a pain in the arse) please refer to matt's landscaping, linked below, which has images and descriptions of the varieties I have listed. He is the world's premier stockist and a damn fine breeder in his own right. He's also a cool cat and reliable unlike some other sellers I won't mention who sell bogus cuttings routinely. All my stock has come from here. Also, if you see one you want, ask me--I might be willing to dock a cutting.

Not much I can do about WA qarantine protocols. I'm happy to post things to you at your own risk though.

I think later this year I'll drive a van across the country on an epic Odyssey of cactus and I'll fill the thing to capacity with cacti :) Too scared to risk things not arriving I've tried 3 times with live plants and failed every time

Hey starling! I've only just gotten into flowering/fruiting cacti and was wondering what is so special about the elite dragon fruit? I noticed they are pricey and thought I'd ask/post as I'm sure other people are wondering too? Are they elite in the sense of taste or growth, or all? Cheers man

If you haven't tried a selected purple dragonfruit, you haven't tried a dragonfruit. Absolutely no comparison to the whites and reds you by at the store.

Update:

All my opuntia cuttings have sold. I will not have more for at least another 6 months.

Thanks

You mean a bulk discount? Yeah, I'll do that. I may no longer have all the listed types on offer, though. PM me, I'll check and see what I have.
