About Arid Lands Greenhouses

Owners Bob Webb and Toni Yocum have grown succulent plants for more than 30 years, many of which were obtained from Arid Lands Greenhouses. They have traveled extensively in Africa and Arabia, looking for and photographing succulent plants. They have been to Oman, Yemen, Socotra, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Namibia, Botswana, and South Africa. They live in the Sonoran Desert, and Bob travels regularly in Baja California.

Bob and Toni frequently give talks on their travels and expertise with plants. Bob is co-editor of the journal Sansevieria, the flagship publication of the International Sansevieria Society, and has described several Agave and Sansevieria for publication as new species.

Susan Quashne has been with us several years and helps to manage the nursery. The two dogs you might see at the nursery are Kaspar (German shepherd) and Simon (a rescue dog).
