In my opinion, you know you’ve made it as a home accessory of the moment when you become a candle so it’s fair to say that the cactus is the new pineapple.
Before, the cactus was the choice of greenery lovers with no obvious green-fingered abilities. Easy to care for and almost impossible to kill, cactus appreciators no longer have to restrict themselves to the terracotta-potted variety.
Quirky yet charming, they’ve been sprouting up all over the place, giving your home endless stylish possibilities.
