Cacti have leaves ?
A cactus (plural: cacti) is able
to exist under extreme conditions it is a plant that has adapted
itself to the conditions.
Cacti have the same basic structure and processes as other plants.
But the stems and branches of the cacti do the work done by leaves
in most plants. In fact, the absence of leaves and the presence
of spine-covered branches and stems enable them to survive in hot,
A cactus plant must guard every drop of water. So the work of the
leaves is taken over by the stems and branches. The roots of cacti
are spread out, close to the surface of the ground, which enables
quick absorption of water after a rainfall. The water is stored
in the spongy, hollow stems of a cactus. Their thick skins have
very few pores and the outer layer of the plant is thick and waxy,
which prevents the escape of water.
