What type of cactus would you be?
Opuntia Ficis Indica, because apparently the extract from this cactus can ease hangovers. Magical.

What type of cactus would you be?
Sedum Morganianum, also called Sedum “Burrito”. This is mainly because I like burritos.

What type of cactus would you be? 
Saguaro because it’s a classic! Also, my design for the Cactus Energy logo was based on this type of cactus. Did you know the Saguaro cactus can live to the ripe old age of 200 years? Pretty cool.

What type of cactus would you be?
The Beavertail Cactus, also known as the ‘Opuntia Basilaris’ – it’s quite short, likes maximum sunlight, doesn’t need much attention and smells like watermelon.
