We’re yet to find any of these gorgeous flowering cacti but its worth contacting Coromandel Cacti, as they are NZ’s specialists in all things cacti related. We found our cacti at the warehouse in their plant department. Stay tuned in to our instagram feed (@sesandjen) over the next few days for a peep at our newly potted cactus.
