Great Auction of Cacti and other Succulents

Coromandel Cacti has announced huge auction of hundreds of cacti and other succulent species, some of them are really old and rare specie. The nursery has to be squeezed from 24000 square feet to 8,000 square feet of greenhouse space because of unplanned end of lease. This is once in a lifetime opportunity for gardeners and retailers because most of the species will not be available for sale again at Coromandel Cacti and elsewhere on auction.
