Okay cute, now I have puppies for sale that are cute, but a cactus. How do you define cute cactus. Define by an anomaly, flowers or growth habits? Hmmmmmmmm :-k

This one is totally up to you. We thought it would be a unique contest theme in which we would get a variety of entries. Everyone's opinion of "Cute" is different. Maybe it's your favorite tiny plant, or maybe it's your fuzziest one, etc. It is all a matter of your own opinion.

There is, (I would think) a relative - general consensus on what a cute cactus or succulent would look like.
I think one would be known if one was seen. :)

Took a while to figure out what to enter for this contest, but I think I am happy with my entry in the long run.

Hi Daiv, does it need to be stroked on the head a little bit every other day to grow those (cute) spines? :P

Cute? Tricky. I'm guessing not this:

I just wanted to post an update on my Bruuchi. The flower finished opening up today! It's my first cacti to go to flower and I'm so happy!
