What are Cactus Plants?
Cacti are plants with parts that are thickened, fleshy and engorged, usually to retain water in arid climates or soil conditions. They typically have leaves that have transformed on into thorns that can be sharp. This reduces their surface area and thus water loss from the leaves due to transpiration. Because they are so symmetrical and attractive, they make you want to play with and pluck their leaves and therein lies their genius, because that is how they multiply and propagate. Cactus plants online are a convenient way to bring the prickly plants home. Buy Cactus plants to get drought-tolerant plants you can forget you have without any fuss. Just remember to handle them with gloves to avoid skin irritation.
