We’re back! Friday Whippet Blogging for everyone!
Echeveria glauca is the litte blue succulent with the big orange bloom stalk.
Is that Safe? I don’t think so. Put that Pokémon away.
This Sunflower is about 12ft tall. In Berkeley! How do I know that it is that tall? Did I measure it with a yard stick? No, I used an app. Nice!
Wade sends along his new cactus t-shirt designs. Nice!
It’s August, so it must be our
Pre-Order by August 31, 2016 and the custom made wreaths arrive in November, shipped direct to you!
We’re featured on 7X7 San Francisco’s favorite places to buy succulents and airplants in the Bay Area. They call our outdoor space “large”! And here we were all along thinking we were a pocket nursery….
The corpse flower (Amorphophallus titanum), also known as the stinky plant or titan arum, is on display at the United States Botanic Garden Conservatory in Washington, DC. Once fully open, the titan arum may remain in bloom for 24 to 48 hours, and then it will collapse quickly.
That’s been a bit of awhile. But the blog is redesigned, the whole Cactus Jungle site is redesigned, and now we’re back!
Here, have a plant!

Quy and Chip send along photos of their garden after planting with Cactus Jungle plants last year. Looking good!
More after the break…. (more…)
I was wondering if you could help to identify this cactus. I saw it while walking down a street of mid-century homes while visiting Palm Springs. I love its color and form, really got my attention. I live on the east coast and would love to care for a (much) smaller plant of this type indoors, if you happen to know any specifics.
Thanks for your time!
The cactus is a Myrtillocactus, also known as the Whortleberry Cactus.
Californios has a whole lineup of young succulents outside. That agave is going to grow bigger, pretty soon….
It’s on 22nd, near S Van Ness in San Francisco.
