Has anyone got cacti through Waterwise Botanicals (https://www.waterwisebotanicals.com/)? I would be interested to hear about your experience with them.

There are many succulent nurseries located in Southern California. but there are only a few retail outlets other than the big box stores. I remember buying succulents at many specialty succulent stores and there are only a few left. I began to buy plants on eBay because it saves time and effort. I really do not like to drive hundreds of miles in order to buy plants and would rather buy them online. I visit nurseries and many of them will not sell specimen plants and would rather buy what is available.

Hi all ! I'm new here.
Want to add the Huntington Botanical Gardens ISI list.

They can be pricey at times but it's for a very good cause and the plants they offer are unique and very rarely offered by big box stores. Everything they sell is vigorous, relative to its genus, and has been documented thoroughly for location of collection or nursery/collector of origination.

Some of my most prized agave and cacti species are from their lists.
