Featured Questions

How big can a Desert Cactus grow?

The sky’s the limit! A Desert Cactus can grow ten feet tall or more indoors, and fifteen to twenty feet tall outdoors.

Is the Desert Cactus toxic or poisonous to humans or pets?

The Desert Cactus, or Euphorbia ammak, is non-toxic. Many popular cactus species are toxic, which is just one reason we think that the Desert Cactus is the gold standard for indoor cacti.

How often should you water a Desert Cactus?

The Desert Cactus and all Cactus varieties should be watered sparingly. Cacti typically do not need to be watered more than once every two weeks during summer, and less frequently during cooler months.
