A cactus makes food through the process of photosynthesis, like any other plant. The difference between a cactus making food from another plant is that cactus have their leaves reduced to spines, therefore, their stem contains chlorophyll and photosynthesis takes place through the stem.

yes ! Cactus has long stem because it dosent have leafs to make chlorophyll so the stem makes food.

Yes, a cactus is a producer. It makes energizing food from the photosynthetic interaction of sunlight with the plant's water, minerals, and dissolved nutrients. That food feeds the cactus, and cactus body parts may feed the consumers of the food chain.

As with all green plants, the cactus produces its own food through the process of photosynthesis.

The stem which is the thick part of the cactus plant stores food.:)

some plant cells have more chloroplast because their habitat might not have sufficient food. eg: cactus lives in the desert where there is no food. so the cactus will need more chloroplast to make more food for survival

Energizing food for the cactus is made in the steminstead of the leaves. Plants make foods from the photosynthetic interaction of water and dissolved nutrients with sunlight. For many plants, that interaction takes place in the leaves. But a cactus plant doesn't have a large enough surface for the interaction to take place in their spiny equivalents of leaves.

Cactus plants make fruits and seeds, with the help of pollinators such as bats, flying insects, hummingbirds, and moths. They make energizing photosynthetic products, with the help of sunlight. They make aerated passagewaysthrough the soil, with the help of their roots and the soil food web.

a cactus is very important because they porvide food for desert animals

yes there is, you can get the water from the cactus.
