Cactus Plants ?

Postby Boischaut » Fri Nov 04, 2016 2:10 pm

Hello there,
another newbie question: where can I find cactus plants like that:

I need a lot of them but not at this cost (it's a little bit expensive for me).
All your replies are welcome !
And now, it's up to you. Please don't be too cruel...

Just a random thought but could pipe cleaners be used to form your own cactus plants. If you need loads, perhaps you could buy a few of the Woodland Scenics offering for the forefront and produce your own hand made ones with the cleaner for the rear.

Try searching on Ebay, I did a search using "model cactus" and it threw up some stuff that could be used, but if you play around with words you may find others... I'd have thought those Chinese guys who make trees may well do something so try them first...
