Cactus (Farming)

A cactus is grown by planting a cactus seed in a cactus patch, requiring level 55 Farming. Planting a cactus seed gives 66.5 experience and requires a cactus seed to be planted/dipped into a cactus patch using a seed dibber. A nearby gardener will watch over the growing cactus at the cost of 6 cadava berries, though this is unnecessary for the Al-Kharid and Menaphos patches after the completion of hard desert achievements, as they become disease-free.

Harvesting cactus yields 3 cactus spines. It does not need to be replanted after harvest and will yield a cactus spine every 20 minutes, capping at 3. Completing all hard desert achievements doubles the yield in the Al-Kharid and Menaphos patches.
