About Me!

Native to South Africa I am slow-growing, low-maintenance plant. My leaves are edged with pointy "teeth." I developed these teeth help me channel rainwater to the base of my roots to keep me hydrated! My spikes are more flexible then some other cacti spikes, so I won't injure any curious pets who decide to take a sniff.
