Where to find succulents and cacti in San Diego county?

This is interesting: I was perusing a financial and economics blog this week, and came across an off-topic (OT) post by one of the members asking if anyone knew of good places to buy succulents and cacti in San Diego.

Maybe because it's a financial forum, their main goal is to save money on their water bill?  Most residents in San Diego don't know this, but 50% of their water bill comes from watering their garden.  Yes, 50%!

Whatever the reason, how cool is it that everywhere we look, we find examples of people searching for information on native plants, and planting climate-appropriate plants?

EXOTIC GARDENS: CACTUS AND SUCCULENT NURSERY in North Park is THE BEST selection and priced cactus and succulents in San Diego!!! Located at 2212 El Cajon Blvd. Call Carl Dykema (owner) at 619-497-0860, he is extremely knowledgeable and very accommodating with prices if you buy a lot.
