The first category is the kingdom, followed by the phylum, division, class, subclass, order, family, genus and species. With each subsequent category, the characteristics of the organism become more specific and defined. Cacti, as plants, are members of the kingdom Plantae.
Keeping this in consideration, how deep do cactus roots go?
Roots of cacti are relatively shallow, with mean depths of 7 to 11 cm for various species native to the Sonoran Desert and 15 cm for cultivated opuntioids; the cultivated vine cactus Hylocereus undatus has even shallower roots.
Also question is, what is cactus used for?
Prickly pear cactus — or also known as nopal, opuntia and other names — is promoted for treating diabetes, high cholesterol, obesity and hangovers. It’s also touted for its antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties.
Is a cactus unicellular or multicellular?
The Prickly Pear Cactus is prokaryotic and multicellular.
All have nipple-like tubercles with dimorphic areoles on the ends. Spines may be stiff and stout, few or many, bristle-like, hair-like, pectinate (comb-like), and come in a wide range of colors. In the axils, that is between the tubercles, there may be wool or bristles or both or neither.
