One of our favourite cacti. Road Kill Cactus, or dancing cactus, are a characterful and striking cacti species. Relatively fast-growing, they have bumpy branching paddles on either side that look like they are dancing or waving hello.

The spines are tiny, making it an excellent option for someone who doesn't like prickly cacti. Easy to look after, the Road Kill Cactus will thrive with minimal effort.
