Succulents and cacti are enjoying a lot of attention online these days, in homes, on prints, for like a good almost two years now I guess. Last year, pineapples also peppered Instagram and they somewhat overlapped the early reign of terrariums and succulents. I never took an interest in anything cacti related in real life as far as I can remember. There was one childhood exception of repeatedly reading one narrative from one of my knowledge books. In it, a barrel cactus helped save a father and son in the desert from dying of thirst when they squeezed out its juice.
