The plant is rooted in the soil at the bottom of the page. The plans stem is shaped like a squat column with a rounded top in the top part of the page. It has clusters of spines on its surface, which help it cut water loss in its hot, dry desert environment by slowing the flow of air around it.The cactus has ridges going vertically up its stem, giving it a star-shaped cross section. This allows the plant to expand and fill up with water during rainy periods.The cactus is a dicotyledon.
