Collection: Cactus Plants

General Cactus Facts

Cactus succulents are a member of the Cactaceae family. The word "cactus" derives through Latin, from the Ancient Greek word "kaktos" a name originally used by Aristotle's successor, Theophrastus for a spiny plant whose identity is now not certain. Cactus come in a very diverse range of shapes and sizes and typically have lost all leaves and instead are covered in their infamous needles in an effort to ward off hugs(Or as a defense against herbivores, experts cannot come to a consensus on this)

Examples of Common Cactus Succulent Plants

There's an insane amount of common Cactus Succulents but to name a few, Mini Cinnamon Cactus, Lady-Finger Cactus, Thimble Cactus, Silverball Cactus, Peanut Cactus, Bunny Ears Cactus

Regions that Cactus Succulents Come From

Cactus are native to the Americas, East Africa, Madagascar and Sri Lanka

Why We Love Cactus Succulents at Succy Crafts

Cactus are a classic for many arrangements and gardens. Great for evoking that sense of the old untamed West, all you'd need to complete that look would be a tumbleweed or two! Although, we wouldn't recommend these in homes with small children or pets that would be tempted to try and eat them.

Cactus Succulent Care Tips

The most common cause of Cactus death is overwatering, so please please please be sure to either make sure the soil is dry before watering or buy a moisture meter to make doubly sure before watering your spiky babies! They'll need more water during spring/summer (maybe watering every 1 or 2 weeks depending on how hot it gets) but once it hits fall and winter, we don't recommend watering more than once every 3-4 weeks. Cactus are luckily A-ok with a great deal of sunlight so don't be afraid of keeping them in an open space or by a windowsill with tons of light!
