Tortoise Cacti

One of the things you will see plenty of pictures of on my Instagram (@growingcookingreading if you are not currently following me) is cacti. All succulents are super popular right now and they do certainly make the perfect houseplant being as cute yet low maintenance as they are.

My cacti have a special extra bonus feature however – they are the perfect food for my little baby tortoise Luna. They are more of an occasional treat than an every day food but she loves them!

Personally I also thing they take beautiful photographs as they have so much detail when you get up close and the slightly translucent green looks perfect in a windowsill with light flooding in from behind!

Here are a few recent pictures I have taken:
