Description

Spines & Flowers – Sashiko KIT – Desert Garden Cactus

Cactus spines help prevent water loss by reducing air flow close to the cactus and provide some shade. But the most obvious function of cactus spines are to protect the plant from predators. There are some reports that ancient peoples used cactus thorns for fishing hooks and sewing needles.
