Help improve Atlas Obscura by expanding Cactus King with additional information or photos.

The Cactus King is represented in giant effigy overseeing his hallowed and succulent Texas fiefdom. Filled with weird junk art, mannequins, crazy cacti (the likes of which most have never seen), and somewhat dilapidated but functional structures, this place is stunning. Entrance is free, but, risky!

Almost more of a religious shrine to weird art and spiky things than just an ordinary plant nursery.  This large plot of land with copious warning signs is dedicated to the supreme Lord of All Cacti, The Holy Ruler of All That is Prickly, the Cactus King himself. Enter if you dare (during business hours, of course)!
