Good idea! :lol:

Have you ever try to "transplant" one or more cacti to another one? I found it is not easy. The "graft" will die after several days...

One more, have you ever seen your cactus explodes? I experienced once, I was very surprised, oh gosh... :lol: :lol:

Cacti are overrated, they can't do cool tricks like fetching your slippers or jumping thru hoops...in fact they seem to grow way too slow.

They are perfect plants for busy people, they are not spoiled, no need extra cares, they can take care of themselves.

And they are useful:
- they are edible when you do have nothing to eat
- you can throw your slippers, hats, clothes, anything on them so you do not need to buy shelf and capstock
- you can make them as a gun
- you can use it to help when you feel itchy
- you are allowed to jump over them as well

do you like a collection of cacti in vitro.(it can be sterilled and culture easily).
People like cacti because they don't release CO2 at night (so you can have them in your room). But you much careful about high light and low water.

We sometimes mistakenly succulent plants as cacti, like these ones: is it cactus or something else?
