I have a confession: I have an obsession with cacti. A lot of people think of the desert as a barren landscape devoid of life, but animal and plant diversity is surprisingly high. There are about 2,000 different kinds of cacti found all over the world and they are just one of the many plant species native to the desert.
Succulents like cacti are great for residential and commercial landscapes, especially in drought-stricken areas, because they are extremely water efficient. They're also great as household plants because they look so cool all the time and require very minimal watering. They're the perfect house plant because they can go weeks without regular watering and still be fine (Trust me, you basically have to try to kill them for these plants to die).
