A Little Cute Colorful Cactus in the Summer Season

Yellow and red cacti

I saw quite a great number of colorful cacti sold in the nursery stores or sections of super malls in my city.

It is called as moon cactus. Small and perfect to put on the tables such as study tables.

This is a mutant cactus, where lack of chlorophyll causes colorful of cacti such as:
- yellow
- red
- orange
- pink

Moon cacti inserted onto chlorophyll’s cacti

To survive, the moon cactus was inserted onto green cactus which has chlorophyll, usually species of Hylocereus cactus.

As we know that chlorophyll absorbs energy from light to conduct photosynthesis. In the process, a plant combines water and carbon dioxide to form sugar (glucose).

Several colorful cacti

Moon cacti come from Southern America, brought and sold in the USA market. Quite popular in the USA.

Price from US$ 3 to US$ 5 each, depend very much on color, size and age.

What color of moon cactus do you like?
