Moon Cactus

The Moon Cactus is a grafted plant, combining the Gymnocalycium mihanovichii, a miniature cactus from South America with another species. The G. mihanovichii lacks chlorophyll; it is not normally compatible with the grafted cactus, and often survives less than a year.

Roughly one-third of all cacti are considered endangered. The largest threat to cacti is removal from the native environment; many are highly desired resulting in illegal trade.

Cacti provide shelter, food and water for many desert animals. The prickly spines protect them from predators.
