Because the roots of the saguaro cactus are just below the surface.
There are many types of small round cacti, but two are the prickly pear cactus and the barrel cactus.
The only cactus I know that has liquid in it is the Calumnnar Cactus. the Calumnar Cactus's liquid fluids can be obtained by scratching or cutting the surface of it.
Big cactus:Big cactus need about 1 quart of water every month.Small cactus:small cactus need to be watered at least every 3-4 days.This info is only for 1 cactus.--- Nelli Vitalevna Glushko! See Anna?
Yes, cactus spines are living parts of the cactus plant. They owe their existence to growth buds on the plant's surface. From the growth buds also come a cactus plant's flowers.
They reduce transpiration due to their small surface area to volume ratio they reflect sunlight they deter hebroduce
The correct term is a pot cactus. A lot cactus is a small cactus that's been planted in a pot to keep in the home.
you have to look at the cactus small big
The cactus gives the woodpecker a protected home and the woodpecker eats small enemies of the cactus that get on it
A cactus is adapted to living in the desert because it has no leaves and a small surface area so it reduces the water loss and a thick stem to store water in a drought. A cactus has very long roots to absorb water very quickly and spikes to stop animals from eating it.
The cactus has a great many predators actually. The cactus falls prey to many insects and small animals that can maneuver around the thorny exterior.
I don't know it for sure but most mammals eats cactus.
It depends on the type of cactus. You'll have to either edit this question and delete the answer or ask a new question about a specific type of cactus
A cactus has adapted by making it's leaves into small spikes so it has a small amount of surface area so that a small amount of water is let out through the leaves. no, actually a catus has spikes that are its leaves that it uses as its structural adaptation it has its fleshy body that stores water as its physiological adaptation.cactii lives in deserts long due to its great storage of water protective adaptations...
An adaptation to a water-poor environment is the reason for the hourglass ripple that characterizes the maturing saguaro cactus (Carnegeia gigantea).Specifically, the phrase "hourglass ripple" is another phrase for cactus ribbing. The saguaro cactus has ribbing, to deal with the low moisture and rainfall world in which it is found. The ribbing lets the cactus decrease in size with less water reserves inside, and increase with more storage. It also helps the cactus minimize the amount of surface evaporation that otherwise takes place on a flat surface.On a flat surface, the sun's rays equally reach all parts. So the most amount of moisture is lost. The sun's access is not equal on the cactus' ribbed, hourglass surface. So the least amount of moisture is lost.
it has adapted by becoming small
the cactus includes small and spiky leaves that reduce evaporation of water. It also prevents loss of water. The cactus has also a thick and juicy stem that stores water.
Chlorophyll gives cactus stems their green color. A cactus has chlorophyll because of the stem's photosynthetic interaction with sunlight to make cactus foods. In many other plants, photosynthesis takes place in the leaves. But cactus needles don't offer a large enough surface for photosynthesis to take place or for photosynthetic byproducts to be stored. Instead, needles have reduced surface areas to stop surface evaporation of moisture. So photosynthesis instead must take place within the larger surface area of the stem.
well....... big, round leaves have more surface area so they can absorb more sunlight; cactus leaves are small and thin so not much water evaporate from them. (in case u didnt know, cactus leaves are more commonly known as 'spikes.')
The leaves of a cactus have been reduced to spines to deter herbivory. The stems are fleshy and photosynthetic. The stomata are sunken into the surface of the leaf to increase the boundary layer.
Decreased surface area minimizes water loss.
stomata is the small openings in the surface of the leaf
i dont belive so. They are a type of small bird.
yes at least once a week
The type of soil needed to plan a cactus would be a sandy soil perhaps even with some small stones.
