"How lovely are thy needles". Wait, that's not right. But replacing branches with needles is exactly what the cactus Christmas tree is doing. It seems Amazon sellers are responding to the current houseplant trends, with cacti and succulents being particularly popular at the moment. For the consumer who wants something else than the classic tree-shaped tree, the webshop offers this... thing.
Maybe there's a chance for all you cactus growers out there? Just adorn your plants with bulbs and lights to add to the holiday spirit. And Christmas tree growers... you might want to invest in some hedge trimmers so you can offer a few cactus-shaped trees for hip consumers.
