WHO ARE WE?
Cactus Store (est. 2014) is a plant-owned human-operated creative studio based in Los Angeles & NYC. We’re a cadre of plant obsessives, ecology nerds, landscape designers/ architects, and artists of every stripe who’ve spent the last decade in the cracks between disciplines working on projects that help broker better relationships between humans and the natural world. 

Our website gives a good rundown of what we’ve been working on, everything from designing greenhouses and writing books, to making clothes and formulating xeric soils.
To stay up to date our Instagram is @hotcactus_la. And here is some recent press.


WHAT IS THE SPECIMEN MONTHLY?:

What began as a humble one-pager about the goings-on of our studio has since grown into something we are seriously excited about; our very own weirdo ecology newsletter, a place where we tell stories about the complicated relationships between the strange and beautiful plants, humans, rocks, insects, fungi, microbes, etc that have been haunting our dreams. We hope they will haunt yours too.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Specimen Monthly newsletter is free to all and publishes once a month(ish) straight to your inbox. The Specimen is reader supported, so if you appreciate what we’re doing we ask that you consider becoming a paid subscriber!

WHY GIVE US MONEY?
By supporting the worm-sucking goblins who churn out its soil-soaked content you will help The Specimen evolve into something even more grotesque, with more and longer articles and new additions (...a podcast *cough* *cough*).  

We are hellbent on trying to broker more conscious and embodied relationships between you our reader, and the natural world. Help us help you replace existential dread with co-existential joy!

Also there are some great perks.
