ordering flowering cactus or flowers online

Looking for recommendations on ordering a flowering cactus or some flowers online for someone recuperating from surgery. I'm trying to stay under $60 if possible. The person is in Baldwinsville NY, which I believe is in the Syracuse (?) area. I'd like to place an order this evening.

Poot's House of Cactus in California does mail order and has some amazing small cylindrical pink cacti that have incredible flowers - see here:

Baldwinsville is indeed in the Syracuse area. Noble's Flowers is local (to B'ville) and I've heard it mentioned before, but I can't vouch for them personally.

I've always had good service from http://www.proflowers.com. I don't see any cactus, but they do have a fairly good selection of get well gifts and flowers for well under $60.

Another vote for Proflowers - very satisfied with them. Also, if you click on the radio microphone on the homepage and type in SHERI, they'll give you a glass vase for free.

i would vote for an Orchid.... we picked up a 12 dollar orchid a couple months ago that bloomed and flowered for 2-3 months.... with the most beautiful delicate blooms imaginable.

cacti are nice - but a little severe .

I know a MeFite whose wife is from Baldwinsville and may have some good advice. His e-mail isn't on his profile page, but e-mail me (mefi at telescreen dot 0rg) and I can try to put you in contact.

specialk420 - it's funny you mention orchids - in my surfing last night in search of cacti, I saw a beautiful yellow orchid that was really cool. It's my backup choice. The cactus was a sense of humor move as well. And thanks vidiot I'll be in touch.......
