Most cacti live in habitats subject to at least some drought. Many live in extremely dry environments, even being found in the Atacama Desert, one of the driest places on earth. Cacti are succulents, which means that, not only have they evolved to lose as little water as possible in extreme heat and drought by having a thick skin and spines that shade and trap respiration, they can also store water.
Cacti are flowering plants, so every kind of cactus is capable of blooming when it is mature. Whether or not an individual cactus plant blooms depends on its age and the care it gets. Some cacti don't bloom until they are more than 30 years old. Others won't bloom, even if they are old enough, unless they get proper light conditions, watering and fertilization.
Our Cactus In Bloom flowers in perpetuity. A sparkling Swarovski crystal is surrounded by equally glittery Gekko beads to form a blossom sitting atop a caged paper mache bead. Cubic Right Angle Weave tubes form the spines of our cacti. These spines taper to a point ending with a beautiful crystal pearl.
