We see many things but, it doesn't mean all of them are true.

Trust me, we all have been listening this since the day we born. But have you thought about it? Why do people say such? The reason will be clear if we understand it with an example.

But wait, why am I explaining Quotes in the blog? You'd come to know about that later, when we will go to the example.

Talking about the example, let's see a Cacti. What we see from outside is just a green trunk full of spikes. And because of such kind of image, a Cacti is always consider to be bad from the inside too. But it holds water from inside. And the spikes are there to protect it from loosing all the water it has.

And also, cactus make a great company when you are doing something productive and innovative.

In this blog, I have discussed about some of the best Cactus plants that'll definitely make you a great company.

Bunny Ear Cactus:

As the name suggests, this cactus plant is flat like a rabbit's ears, divided by nodes. The internodes are just flat and have very small spikes on it. Still, keeping a little distance from this little angel is considered to be a good idea.

Apart from the beauty, it is also known for creating a casual vibe around the place it is kept. This makes it a perfect pairing for your beautiful window or balcony.

Other that just the window and balcony, I would also suggest decorating it at some random places like near your doorstep or in the kitchen.

Golden Barrel Cactus:

Golden Barrel Cactus is one of my personal favorite in this list. As the name of the plant tells, it's shaped like a barrel and has golden spikes on it. This one looks so cute and beautiful, that once you see it, you might think of grabbing the whole thing. But make sure you don't grab it like a ball, cause this ball has pretty big spikes on it.

I will recommend you to decorate the shelves and desks with this beauty, as this will just glorify them.

Also, if you have or are going to have any cactus plant in your house, make sure they are a little away from children's reach. Also choose a place that will promote less accidents with the cactus.
