Best succulents and exotic houseplants nursery on my route?

I'm driving roundtrip next week from KS to TX, and along the way I'll be passing through these cities: Oklahoma City, OK and Fort Worth, Austin, San Antonio, and Medina, TX. In or nearby any of these cities, do you know about a fabulously awesome and dirt cheap nursery, open on Saturdays, that sells succulents/cacti and potentially other houseplants/exotics as well? I'm not interested in outdoor stock (trees/grasses/annuals/etc). [more inside]

Don't die, little cacti

So I have this little plant that I got a few years ago and I sort of... forgot about him a lot. I know I know - I'm a bad plant mom! He's been up on a window sill tucked behind a curtain so I only remembered to water him very occasionally. Is he dead? Or can he be saved? Does anyone know what type of cacti or succulent (shows what I know, right?) this is, and how much I should be watering him? Also since it's been a while - would replanting help?

I think I've given home to Audrey III

I have a cactus which I believe to be an ostropuntia subulata monstrose (pic of one that looks just like mine). It didn't grow for years, and now it's growing astonishingly quickly. Why? And what can I do to help it along? Any tips? [more inside]
