Thorns are beautiful. I love the cactus for its survival abilities. How much did we learn about their adaptation towards dry environment makes me really proud. I mean, who trades nice, bushy leaves for a meaty skin with thorns for so many reasons, and living with whatever water you can get your hands on in your whole lifetime. The answer is - Cactus. Guess what, most of them grow from stems, so why don't we drop off our beliefs of not keeping a cactus (thorns bring bad luck 😂😂)?
