In SoCal, I appreciate how hardy cacti grow in wild abundant sculptural formations as you walk along ugly concrete streets. Its nice to see their popularity is spreading to other parts of the country where the climate may not be as amenable in the form of indoor planters, framed prints, wallpaper, and murals. Tropical palm fronds are so last year, hello sweet prickly cactus.
1) Cacti are so popular here in LA, they have an entire shop devoted to just them in the epicenter of cool, Echo Park - The Cactus Store.
