Unlike our succulent babies, the backstories we provide for them do not hold much water. That is what happens when a children's book author is assigned to write the plant's descriptions. We purchase our plants from dealers across the country and from local nurseries in New York City. However, we do rescue many of the plants that are sadly being neglected by nurseries. It breaks our hearts to come upon dried up succulents that were forgotten and left to die. We are happy to be able to save these babies and bring them home to our shelter where they get love and care and help to find their forever homes. Thanks to people who succ like we do!
