Move over fiddle leaf fig. There’s new cool kid in town and it’s a little prickly! Cactus are quickly becoming the house plant du jour and I’m on board (yes, even with having a one year old – when something hurts they learn quickly!).
I’m a big fan of any plant that looks super cool and sculptural and is really really hard to kill. I thought airplants would be easy. I was wrong. Cactus can live indoors or out. They can be tiny and displayed in multiples on a shelf, in your kitchen or bathroom. Or you can go big, buy a massive one and park it in a huge pot. Etsy is full of good pot options.
Cacti also come in a variety of shades and textures. You can really play with the visual you want. Some even flower – a lot! While I’m still trying to figure out both the layout and the light situation in our new house I think a cactus (or seven) will tide me over until I can go house plant crazy. If you’re into this idea as much as I am then you’ll love this entire blog devoted to cacti.
What do you think? Have you cultivated cacti in your home? Are you a fan??
