I inadvertently discovered that these prickly little plants have quite a following when I posted a photo of a cactus on Instagram recently. So for all those crazy about cacti and sweet on a succulent, this cactastic post is for you...
In 1902 the impressive Cacti House was added to the Phipps Conservatory, which is located at Schenley Park, Pittsburgh Pennsylvania USA. Henry Phipps’ original Cacti House later became the Desert Room as a more diverse selection of plants and flowers from warmer climates of the United States were added.
