I've purchased succulents inexpensively at WalMart or Home Depot. I hope this helps!
This site sells them at wholesale: https://mountaincrestgardens.com/wholesale-succulents/
Keep in mind, once you have them, you can propagate new ones!
Diane....If you have friends or family that would like to thin theirs you can get some from them... just ask around. Also I have always, since a little girl, been told not to Thank anyone for giving you Hen and Chicks because yours will not live if you do! Hope you find some.
They will grow from cutting. I have a friend who gives me some when hers are overgrowing. I also bought them at Lowe's for $.99 on sale.
See if you have friends who also enjoy them and share.
The best deal I have found on succulents is at Trader Joes.
I have a ton of them and share with my neighbors. You can also post on Nextdoor asking for succulents. I agree with Linda Trader Joes has a wonderful plant section that does not cost an arm and a leg.
Succulents are quite pricey in my area and Home Depot or Lowes charge outrageous prices for them, and nurseries even more. Many I get as cuttings from friends or acquaintances. And I Googled and found several commercial growers that sell to the public (mind you these growers sell to places like HD, Lowes and others), all within proximity to my home. When looking for a new variety, I just make the rounds and can get tiny babies for as little as 50 cents. Most are in the dollar to two dollar range which is still way below what others charge. So, give it a try, you never know what might turn up!
Hi Diane - Your first place is free - if your community is on Nextdoor, Freecycle, etc (always practice safety). Costco has them, Trader Joes, Home Depot, even Etsy. Since you are interested, here are 2 super cute ideas for succulents. Hope this helps with some inspiration. Hugs, Holly
Hi Diane, you can check with friends and family to see if they have any succulents you can split off, or check prices online, a lot of places will ship with special instruction.
