Cacti and succulents are not popular here in Pakistan only a few nurseries carry these plants and even then they cannot identify them by names, so we can never be sure what type of succulents are available here but regarding a list, i can upload some of the plants by name that are available easily soon. :)

I must add here that since i belong to Peshawar i have visited most of the nurseries from Peshawar to Rawalpindi (excluding Islamabad) and this fact is heart breaking for me as a cacti lover that non of these nurseries i have visited have proper setup for Cacti and Succulents which fact is a kind of hurdle for having access to different varieties of cacti. Yes i firmly agree that proper discussion to this subject is required not only for awareness but to introduce different varieties of cacti to public in general
thanks
