Posted by: Rhona Reid On June 22, 2018 11:27 am

What’s the newest advancements in water technology? Can we talk about cacti for a moment?  Those iconic, prickly stalwarts of countless movies and cartoons depicting dry, airless deserts are amazing things and we don’t use the word lightly.  Like any other living thing, cacti need water to live.  As they usually live in parched, arid conditions, cacti have developed incredible systems in order to survive.
