Succulent Farm & Nursery ~ Proudly Serving Retail and Wholesale Clientele


Serious Succulent Addiction? Yeah, Us Too…

The Cactus King offers the largest collection of cacti and succulents for sale on the planet! It is imperative to the owner, Mr. Lyn Rathburn, that the community at large have the same access to these magical plants as special collectors, museums, botanical gardens, zoos and landscapers. We love our plants and want to spread the joy they bring us with the rest of the world.

Shop Online Like A King - Introducing Our New eCheck Payment Option!

The King decreed that the online minimum purchase amount be reduced from $50.00 to $25.00! All hail! All hail!

What is an eCheck (electronic check), and why use them? https://quickclick.com/r/kqifb
src="https://thecactusking.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/Node_Image/Neobuxbaumia%20polylopha%2014%27%20FRONT%20PAGE.JPG" style="width:50%;height:50%;float:right">

An electronic check, also known as an eCheck, is a form of digital payment that serves the same function as a physical check. By accepting an eCheck, The Cactus King receives funds by pulling them directly from the recipient's checking account. The advantages to using eChecks over physical checks are numerous. The website is: https://quickclick.com/r/kqifb

Paper checks are not as secure. If lost in transit, the account number and routing number printed at the bottom is exposed to whomever comes across it. Furthermore, physical checks (on average), take far longer to process. Physical checks must be filled out, mailed, received and deposited before the funds have an opportunity to clear. eChecks, on the other hand, begin their approximate 1-3 business day processing time the moment that they are submitted. Upon first contact with The Cactus King's fiscal institution, funds are made immediately available. Finally, at no point in time, can The Cactus King view your banking information (routing number/account number).

The Cactus King still accepts:

1. Checks (physical, paper checks)
2. Money Orders
3. Cash (We do not suggest sending cash via mail as there is no paper trail)

To pay by eCheck simply:

1. Choose "Other" as your payment method
2. An eCheck payment link will be sent to your provided email
3. Click said link/complete payment
4. Congratulate yourself for making the best purchase of your life

Average Inquiry Response Time (from your friendly, imperial monarch)

The Cactus King and other commercial nurseries that sell common landscaping plants are unable to operate in the same fashion. Mr. Rathburn is a trained, expert botanist within an already highly specialized portion of horticulture/botany (cacti and succulents). Our nursery is run by a team of ten, dedicated employees. Each team member must undergo months of intensive training before being able to fulfill even the simplest of customer requests.

We work hard to respond to all inquiries in a timely manner. Please allow up to 2 business days for a response. The average response time is 1-2 hours. For urgent matters, please contact The King at (281) 591-8833

Thank you for your cooperation and patience!

Regal Eco-Friendly Practices

Participating in environmentally sustainable growing practices is at the crux of The Cactus King's philosophy. Aside from the beauty and magic that cacti and succulents bring (and it's substantial), they save an INCREDIBLE amount of water.

The Cactus King uses approximately 250 thousand gallons of water annually. A nursery of the same size that sells other popular landscaping plants, utilizes anywhere from 5 million to 12 million gallons of water each MONTH! We see no necessity in compromising the needs of our planet for the needs of our business.

Special Occasion? It's Your Day To Be The King!

It's no surprise that our clientele see us as a destination, not simply a store to purchase another product. The Cactus King's customers frequently make the trip from different countries, cities and states. They enter with a look of magic and wonder on their faces. Botany students from surrounding universities come to observe and photograph our diverse collection of cacti and succulents. Brides and grooms to be often come to take engagement and wedding photos.

The magic of hundreds of species of cacti and succulents from all around the globe will almost certainly compliment your special occasion. Whether you are taking family photos, celebrating an engagement or have an interest in botany, The Cactus King is the place for you.

The cost to take photographs at our nursery is $40.00 per half hour. Please contact The King via phone or text at (281) 591-8833 to make a reservation! Thank you!
