Properties of the cactus plant
Are you looking for a plant that you don’t have to water a lot? A cactus could be your answer! Most cacti come from arid regions and are used to going for weeks without rain. Cactus houseplants have the same characteristic: just give cacti a bright, sunny place and you can enjoy the easy-care houseplants without much care.
There is a wide variety of cacti to grow; They offer a plethora of shapes, colors and sizes so you can find one that suits your personality and decor style. Given enough light, many will bloom, producing cheerful white, pink, red, orange, yellow, or purple flowers. More common cactus groups include Cereus, Echinocactus, Espostoa, Ferocactus, Mammillaria, Notocactus, Opuntia, Parodia, Pilosocereus, and Rebutia.
Make the most of your cactus houseplants by planting them in containers that accentuate the plants’ rich colors, shapes, or textures. And by grouping several different cacti together on a windowsill or tabletop, you can create a mini desert escape! In addition to being good houseplants, most cacti are also good plants for offices as they do not require natural light. Lots of artificial light is good!
