☘ Origin: Peruvian Andes, South America
☘ Family: Cactaceae
☘ Botanical Name: Austrocylindropuntia subulata
☘ Common Name(s): Eve's Pin Cactus · Eve's Needle Cactus · Long Spine Cactus
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.
The name subulata comes from the latin subulate meaning "awl-like" which is referring to the shape of the rudimentary leaves. Therefore, it is called Eve's Pin Cactus.
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.
☘ In the wild, Eve's Pin can reach a height of 3.6m, and a width of 1.5m. When kept as a houseplant or container plant, its size is naturally limited. This unusual and attractive cactus grows in a tree-like formation.
☘ When this species grows in dry areas it wins the battle against native plants and creates dense colonies which harm natural regeneration. It fights other native species such as Mastic Trees, European Fan Palms, Bridal Brooms and Mediterranean Junipers.
☘ 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.
