Close up illustration of the surface of a bright green cactus showing clusters of pale blue spines that are each surrounded by wisps of fog.


Safety Rating: Situationally dangerous and beneficial.

Environment: Deserts.

Details: This large, branching cactus has dense clumps of needles that become exceptionally cold at night, allowing it to condense water out of the air. The cactus stores this water in its trunk. Because of this unique ability, Ice Needle Cactus can survive in areas too dry for most other desert plants and it is an important source of food and water for many people and animals. However, this condensation process does make the cactus dangerously cold at night.

Inspiration: Prickly pear cactus.
