There are some common questions that people often ask on the subject of cactus decor:

Many studies have shown indoor plants are good for concentration, productivity, reducing stress level, boosting your mood, also it can be a source of great pleasure to your eyes and mind.
2. Have you recommended indoor plants (especially cactus) to any of your clients? If yes, could you elaborate on the example?
Yes, I have recommended it to a lot of clients who want to work on their room interiors, but are a little confused about the “what’s” and “how’s”. Recently, one of my clients who is a working professional and lives independently, asked me some décor tips that are less expensive and low maintenance as she spends most of her time at work. I suggested her, the mug cacti, mall- small mug cactus or small colourful cactus pots, and place them on the study table, bookshelf, and near the windows, they are very convenient to carry, and require very less maintenance and overall give your room a vibrant and positive look. Next thing you know, her insta feed was flooded with the tiny cactus wonders, a sure-fire proof of how much she loved it!

You can use 'mug off' cactus. Drinking coffee in mugs, BORING!! Putting a small cactus in there is a recipe to interior décor success. You can carry them anywhere you want and they look cute on your study table, office table, or any small shelf you want to place them on.
Another ingenious cactus arrangement is the one made with crochets. These small homemade decoration pieces are a quirky and oh-so-adorable option. They require no maintenance at all, you can place them in your bedroom or living room, and they will attract every onlooker’s fancy.
