7 Best Places to Buy Succulents Online
With the growing popularity of succulents, there are more and more vendors vying for the opportunity to sell them to you. The question of where to buy succulents online is getting ever more difficult.
The websites below are not ranked in any particular order. Each of them has pros and cons, different plant varieties, shipping methods, and deals. I’d recommend checking out a few!
For full disclosure, some of the links below are affiliate links. That means that if you click on one of them, then buy something from that site, Sublime Succulents gets a small commission. It’s no extra cost for you and it allows Sublime Succulents to keep putting out more educational content about fat plants.
Let’s look at some succulent stores, shall we?
It may appear that their selling point is a bunch of cute children supposedly selecting succulents for you. And while that’s true, they have plenty of other things going for them too.
Customers are always impressed by the quality and speed of Succulent Source shipments. Do you want to know the secret to great shipping?
Sending happy plants quickly.
And how could the plants not be happy when they’re being shipped directly to you from sunny California?
Were you thinking about a succulent-themed wedding? Of course you were, those are awesome. Well, the Succulent Source has everything from wedding favors, to bridal party accents, to centerpieces, and more!
They also offer wholesale plants, corporate packages, arrangements, DIY projects, and a monthly succulent subscription!
2. Leaf & Clay
The elegant, minimalist website belies what is really a comprehensive catalog. Leaf & Clay has one of the most extensive lineups of succulent species on the web. Read our in-depth review here for lots of extra info.
Search their collections of hardy, rare, low-light, and straight-up weird succulents and cacti.
Beware – you’ll probably end up buying more than you expected if you browse around. It’s a good thing they have free shipping on orders over $75!
Make sure to sign up for their newsletter! They’ve got loads of deals monthly. Like all good succulent vendors, they have a Safe Arrival™ Guarantee. Also like all good succulent vendors, they have a monthly subscription for new plants on the reg.
Sometimes it’s okay to treat yo’self.
One of the greatest strengths of Leaf & Clay is their clean and clear pictures of plants. You know just what you’re getting when you order there. Don’t wait around if you spot something you like, though! Their inventory moves quick and particular species often go out of stock!
Buying succulents online is a total breeze with Succulent Gardens. Their generous free shipping and 14-day satisfaction guarantee make it a totally risk-free option.
Not that you need it – their plants are of impeccable quality. The only risk you are taking is that you’ll get addicted!
The selection at Succulent Gardens is especially cool because, in addition to normal pot-sized plants, SG also has landscape-sized plants. Yeah. Look at the size of this thing.
I haven’t even gotten to the best part yet!
Yeah, Succulent Gardens has healthy plants, huge plants, and happy plants. But they’ve also got some of the best planters and DIY kits in the industry.
Here’s one of my favorites.
I just love vertical succulent gardens so much.
Honestly, I might replace all the art in my home with these sorts of things. Picasso ain’t got nothing on the natural beauty of cacti!
Speaking of cacti – if that’s your thing, then you need to head on over to Planet Desert. They have the largest selection of spiky plants on the, well, planet.
In fact – I got in touch with the owner (Mark Ramirez) to ask just how he sources his massive collection of cacti. His answer?
Cactus tours. The man and his family go driving around California looking at other nurseries, private collections, gardens, and even the nearby deserts! All in the pursuit of spiny plants.
Seriously, sign me up.
They go on these tours with some frequency, so the stock is always rotating. You never know what crazy new cacti and succulents will be available, so check often. By the same token, you can’t count on any of the limited stock to always be available, so don’t sit on it!
If the sheer diversity of plants weren’t enough to make me fall in love with Planet Desert, it’s the authenticity of the owners. I’ve rarely seen a business that is so involved and invested in their customers.
Touted by many as the best place to buy succulents online, you can’t go wrong buying from Mountain Crest Gardens. They carry a huge variety of plants for a very reasonable price. If you’re looking to start your collection, they also sell bundles of random succulents on the cheap! Perfect for gifts or expanding your own collection.
They recently started a rewards program. Now you can feel less guilty for each binge on succulents. It’s like your obsession is feeding itself now… in a more affordable way.
6. Buy Succulents Online at Amazon
Believe it or not, the fat plant trade on Amazon is thriving. You can find lots of succulents collections, succulent accessories, and countless succulent seeds. The quality varies by seller, of course, but the options are endless. Read the reviews of other customers when making your decision!
If you have Amazon Prime – you’re in luck (if not, here’s a 30-day free trial). There are loads of succulent plants, cuttings, accessories, and pots available through Prime.
What’s better than satisfying that Amazon spree with sweet, sweet succies? Nothing. That’s what. Two-Day Shipping here we come!!!
Perhaps an unconventional entry, but Etsy has a wealth of succulents and related paraphernalia. You’re likely to find a quality comparable to or slightly better than Amazon. This is the place to go if you would rather support the individuals or small businesses that populate Etsy. Since it might be a bit daunting to delve in if you’re unfamiliar, here are some of the best Etsy succulent stores.
That wraps it up for this Etsy Shop roundup, but there is much, much more. A simple search for “succulents” on Etsy will yield innumerable results.
