Symbolism

Native American cultures believe that the Cactus represents warmth, protection, and motherly love. Because cacti plants can survive in harsh conditions, they've become a symbol of unconditional, maternal love. Cacti plants further symbolize maternal love and care because they have medicinal qualities.

Name Story

Thanksgiving Cactus: When Thanksgiving is right around the corner, it begins to blossom secretly as if to celebrate the coming of Thanksgiving. Hence, people call him Thanksgiving Cactus.
Crab Cactus: When you see its fleshy leaves, you must feel that the plant looks familiar. That's because its special claw-shaped stem segment looks like the Crab's feet with distinct knots. That's why it's called Crab Cactus.
Christmas Cactus: It blooms on Christmas and New Year’s Day, and so it is named the "Christmas Cactus" by Christian areas of the world.

Feng Shui

While plants bring positivity into your home, cactuses are an exception. Cactuses are nice plants with strong protective energy but their spines are a problem. Place your living cactus plants with thorns in a sunny spot with good flow of air, and say goodbye to negative energy. Good Feng Shui placement for cactus plants protects people from the negative energy rays that cactus spines radiate in all directions.

Cacti are one of classic Feng Shui cures used for shifting the energy and attracting wealth.

Interesting Facts

The stem of the False Christmas Cactus is often too long and drapes, so it is often made into a hanging orchid for decoration. The flower is bright and lovely, suitable for decorating windowsills, entrances, and exhibition halls. It fills the space with brightness and liveliness. It blooms on Christmas and New Year’s Day, and so it is named the "Christmas Cactus" by Christian areas of the world. However, some are regulated to bloom in October with the help of different cultivation methods.

Health Benefits

☘ Adding Cacti to your home, help keep your fresh air and remove toxins from the environment.

☘ Plants absorb our respiratory waste (carbon dioxide), and they convert it into plant carbohydrates to build strong bodies that in turn create pure, clean, life-empowering oxygen for us to breathe.
