This low maintenance, water wise plants store water in their spine or leaves, making them the perfect choice for beginner and expert gardeners alike. Colasanti’s offers a variety of cacti, well worth the visit to pick out your favourites. If you have any questions about specific varieties and availability, contact Thomas at



Cacti grow in hot and dry environments, so they thrive in bright sunlight. Some have adapted to enjoy full sun, but many will still need periods of shade, so it’s best to put them somewhere they can get indirect sunlight.


Because their native environments are dry, cacti have adapted by storing water in their spine, so they are very drought-tolerant. Allow the soil to become dry between waterings (this will be more frequent in the Summer), and then water thoroughly. Drainage holes on your pot assure that excess water does not sit at the bottom of your plant and cause root rot.
