The word “cactus” is derived from the Latin through Ancient Greek. It means spiny plant. According to WIKIPEDIA, its identity is uncertain.
All cacti are succulents. They grow in many different areas of the world: from Patagonia in South America to up North in Western Canada. You may also view the cactus plant in Sri Lanka and Africa. In my life, I visited the Sonoran Desert in Tucson Arizona and loved the cactus plant in all its varieties.
