[ cactus knowledge ]

I just learned that with the exception of 1 species out of 1750, all cacti originated in, and only exist naturally, in the Americas. And that single rogue cactus species that turns up elsewhere (mistletoe cactus, in Africa and Sri Lanka,) may have been moved there via boat, by human animals.
This completely blows my mind.
Clearly, I need so much more cactus knowledge.
