FAQ

  • How long does delivery take?
    The average delivery time is from 3-5 business days, although special delivery requirements are offered. Simply email us if you wish for fast tracked and we will invoice you for the new postage fee of this service.
  • Where are your plants from?
    The majority of our plants are home grown here within the United Kingdom, with the acceptation of some being outsourced from Spanish and Dutch nurseries. The cacti that we source from some very special growers in England have raised all their plants from seed and even remember planting them up to over 50 years ago! We take great pride in being able to continue the growing and care of these plants in our greenhouses at Curious Cacti HQ alongside our very own seedlings and mother plants.
  • How often do I water my cacti?
    If in a heated indoor environment, water every 2 weeks in spring and summer. Then in winter every 4 weeks. If in a greenhouse, water every 2 weeks in spring and summer.
  • What does bare root mean?
    When we mention that our plants are shipped bare root, this means that the plant is taken out of the pot and soil. This leaves only the roots of the plant showing. We will then package the plant carefully to ensure no damage to the plant or root system. When you receive your plant, you can pot the plant up in soil and a pot of your own.
  • Do we buy cacti and succulent collections?
    Yes! We love to bring more love to any cacti and succulent collection which can either no longer be cared for or housed anymore. Unfortunately due to the small size of our business, our greenhouses may not have the capacity for some or all collections. We ask that when you contact us either direct through email or through our contact page on our website, that you attach a picture of the plants that need to be rehoused so we can assess their sizes and condition. We can mostly identify all cacti and succulents but additional information such as their genus and species would be greatly appreciated if possible, but if not don't worry! And although we are based in Hampshire, we love to travel and will happily come to you to collect the specimens from all over the United Kingdom!
  • Can we help with any plant identification or care?
    Yes we can. Just pop us a message either direct to our email or through our contact page on the website with your questions, and we will try to respond within 24hrs.
  • Can Curious Cacti be contacted for any events/markets?
    We would love to hear from you! We love to show our passion for cacti and succulents so we would be more than happy attending different events and markets where we can showcase our range of beginner and collector plants to the public. Contact us on Contact@curiouscacti.co.uk to enquire about our availability and we will respond as soon as possible.
  • Do we offer wholesale?
    Yes we do! We offer wholesale for a mixture of different cacti. This will include different genus and species of all shapes and sizes. Please contact us via email if you wish to enquire and we will be more than happy to help.
