Buy direct from the farm
Cactus Kate's Trichocereus Collection was rescued in 2005 when I moved what could be salvaged to the California Central Valley. Her mother plants were resurrected to full health. Each of her varieties was propagated by cuttings year after year. The result ensures sustainable propagation of her unique strains of Trichocereus varieties — plants that have been considered sacred for thousands of years
Cannot ship internationally
—it requires expensive Customs documentation

Some people email to assert cactus are legal in their country; but that is not the problem. All countries have Customs regulating incoming shipments. They require "plant phytosanitary certification" and other declarations. You can't import live plants without quarantine, etc. This would take way too much of my time & cost too much $money. Sorry.

Ship to USA only
I will not cheat by mailing anything via USPS and lying about the actual contents on the Customs form
Shipping by FedEx Ground

Monday—Friday FedEx Ground picks up from this rural location. FedEx claims 5-business days coast-to-coast delivery. During storms or 3 day weekends it may slip to 6 business days. My customers have had no problems year after year.

Alaska & Hawaii can't be reached by truck

It is expensive to ship to those 2 states because FedEx has to put your package on an airplane. If the cost is not an issue to you - I will have to charge you an additional fee if you use the "Buy Now" buttons that apply a flat rate shipping cost for the 48 contiguous states. If you like in Hawaii or Alaska you know how expensive it is to get an item by UPS or FedEx. I'll get you a shipping quote. Just email me.

Your cactus will be packed with all the soil so that it will not fall out!

Literature is included for rooting cuttings and for live plant care, too.
Combined shipping

Have no fear - if you buy several items the shipping cost should be combined (based on total weight) by the Google Checkout system. If it is too high I'll manually adjust down the shipping by refunding to the credit card.

Why its safe to buy from me

You are always protected through your credit card company; if you change your mind I will cancel the order, refund, etc. No problem. I sell on eBay (since 1998), on Amazon.com, and also here on my own website. This is a small business but an honest one.
