Lullingstone's Hot & Spikey house contains over 1,000 varieties of Cacti, Succulents & Bromeliads from all over the world. This diverse collection showcases xerophytic (dry loving plants) delights from all corners of our green globe such as South America, Africa, Mexico, South West USA & Macaronesia (Canary Islands, Madeira, Azores & Cape Verde Islands).

Visitors are treated to a wow factor upon entering this horticultural delight, laying their retinas on stunners such as the "Mother-in-Law's Cushion" from Mexico and the "Smelly Socks Plant" from Madeira.
