Cactus are succulents, which means they can store large amounts of water to keep them alive through long droughts. They are not poisonous but watch out for their spines. Cactus is a great starter plant or gift as they are super easy to take care of. They will tolerate lower light conditions, but thrives in sun, and needs very little water. They would much rather be too dry than too wet. Think of desert when taking care of them.
As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.
