Mini-Show Cactus February 2023: Epiphytic Cactus

Epiphytic cacti do not live in soil like other cacti but in places like rain forests they inhabit the forks or large branches of trees, their roots clinging tightly to their host. Epiphytes have specially designed stomata (leaf openings), that help absorb moisture from the open air.
