cactus stems carry out photosynthesis and store water. Unlike many other succulents, the stem is the only part of a true cactus where this takes place. Much like many other plants that have waxy coatings on their leaves, Cacti often have a waxy coating on their stems to prevent water loss. This works by preventing water from spreading on the surface and allowing water to trickle down the stem to be absorbed by the roots and used for photosynthesis. Cacti have a thick, hard-walled, succulent stem - when it rains, water is stored in the stem. The stems are photosynthetic, green, and fleshy. The inside of the stem is either spongy or hollow (depending on the cactus). A thick, waxy coating keeps the water inside the cactus from evaporating.

A cactus draws nutrients and water through the roots. Water is stored in special cells that swell when filled with water. The skin is covered in a waxy film to prevent loss of water by evaporation.


That answer is wrong! the roots are just bellow the survice so to soak up as mmuch water as possible when it rains, also they have spikes on their leaves to warn off other prediators not to eeat it. they have thick waxy skin aswell.all this i know for an absolute fact.


A cactus that stores water in its stem is called a stem succulent. The stem has tissues that are capable storing large quantities of water. The stem also has a thick waterproof epidermis covered by a waxy cuticle that prevents loss of water due by evaporation. Examples of stem succulents - Cardon Cactus, Organ Pipe Cactus, Saguaro Cactus
