Sarah Hearts Orlando: Florida Cactus Inc Succulent Farm
I adore succulents for two reasons: 1. they come in such an array of interesting shapes and colors and because 2. they are really really hard to kill.
I like to convince myself that I have a green thumb but I tend to, ok almost always, ultimately forget to water my plants and I’m only left with my little herd of succulents throughout the house and around the yard. So when I first heard about Florida Cactus Inc., a succulent only nursery outside of Orlando, I knew I had to check it out!
Amalie and I went on adventure to Apopka, which is about 35 minutes outside downtown Orlando. We visited the nursery right at noon…in the summer… which I don’t recommend! The nursery is made up of 8 or so green houses full of succulents. Their friendly staff gave us a map which also includes their retail prices.
They have just about every type of succulent you’d ever want in just about every size. They also have ones I’ve never seen before! The smallest starters are in about 2″ pots for a few dollars and the prices increase from there. They are only open on the weekdays, so on your next day off you should definitely plan a trip.

What a little slice of heaven! Thanks for sharing such a cool place!
You’re so welcome! It really is such a gem!
I too love succulents! One of things that do so well on my back porch. Thanks for sharing Sarah. I am definitely going there!
You would love it, Lori! They have everything!
Wow!!!! I HAVE to come visit this place in person! So dreamy.
It really is! Just wait until winter. The greenhouses get HOT!
Loved discovering these when lemonhearted.com introduced them to me – and they are practically in my backyard! Nice to see them getting more love.
Yes, isn’t it such an awesome gem in Orlando?
This looks amazing! Also you are sincerely too damn cute for words.
Hah, thanks Cyd!
Hi. I arrive at 11:30 today in Orlando and is love to come visit the nursery. I have a wish list of ants I’m looking for. I’m staying at Disney Corinado springs for a meeting and would likely visit today. Hi far are you? Please email me with info. My our nursery looks beautiful
We are having a wedding in May. We would like to have little 2 – 4″ individual pots of succulents that we will be giving away as a wedding favor. I have a wholesale license, are you wholesale or retail? Would you please send me a price list and more info so we could plan.
Thank you and have a Merry Christmas.
Hi Sherry, I don’t own/I’m not associated with the cactus farm. I just visited it and shared about it here. I recommend reaching out to them directly for more information and pricing. https://www.yelp.com/biz/florida-cactus-inc-apopka-2

Hello Sarah, What is the name of the leafy cactus you are holding in one of the pictures on your website, a friend gave me one,it has little pearls on the edge ,and when they fall they grow like crazy. Thank you Neil Walden, Tulare, Can.
Can you tell me if you do international wholesale to the Caribbean?
I’ve recently caught succulent frenzy and found your blog when searching for something in Orlando beyond the selection at Lowe’s. I will check this place out. I only wish it was open on weekends, though. Will have to take a weekday afternoon for the visit. Thank you for sharing, and great blog!
