Founded in 2012, Arid Adaptations is a local nursery specializing in cactus, succulents, and caudiciforms. We also feature many plants that are frost and heat Tolerant; ideal for Arizona landscapes. 


I have been growing plants in Tucson since 1992. I worked ten years at the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum as a horticulturist in the botany department, essentially curating the cactus and succulent collection. As My personal plant collection began growing out of hand, it became obvious that a nursery was the only answer. With greenhouses, 150,000 plants, lots of dogs, 9 chickens, turtles, and great landscaping; I have a wonderful oasis in the desert.
