For the vast majority of responding garden centers, 2015 was a good year to be selling succulents and cacti, according to this year’s State of the Industry Report. Out of 340 businesses surveyed, 281 respondents said their IGC carries a succulents/cacti category. Of this group, only 4% (10 businesses) said the category declined in sales in 2015, with 56% (156 businesses) reporting increased sales and 41% (115 businesses) saying their succulent/cacti sales remained the same.
