Anyone who is interested in purchasing rescued cacti can request their email be placed on a sale notification list by emailing us.
To get on our Sale Notification EMail List.. Send Request to TCSS - Indicate Sale List
We will notify you as to the type of cacti for sale and location. We no longer maintain wait lists for Ocotillo and Saguaros as we seldom acquire them and have a huge demand for them when we do get them (we usually limit one or two per family)
Please note that we do not ship or take orders for rescued cacti. Contact our Member Nurseries for such services.
TCSS Members who would like to be notified (emailed every Thursday)about Cactus Rescues the following weekend, can request their email be placed on our Cactus Rescue Crew list.
To get on our Cactus Rescue Crew Notification EMail List.. Send Request to TCSS - Indicate Rescue Crew List
You must be a paid up TCSS member to be added to the List and to be able to participate on Cactus Rescues.
We have two downloadable PDF publications to help you plant and care for your rescued plants:
