Easy to grow

Growing cacti is easy. If you are one of those people that forget to water plants, cacti are for you. You can find them at home and garden stores such as garden nurseries, Home Depot, and Lowes. They always have a nice selection. Lately, the sections at the stores have multiplied in size due to the popularity of people wanting to grow them. Start with something small, buy a few mini ones to plant to see if growing these are for you. They are slow growing, some will bloom flowers, some just grow straight up. Cacti take a specific kind of growing medium. When handling these prickly little suckers, it is always best to wear gloves that can’t be pricked through.

It does not require the talent of green thumbs, but if it’s not for you then the selection of faux ones are everywhere from Michaels to Hobby Lobby. Faux ones look just like the real ones except with no maintenance.
