Cactus patch

This article is about the patch that grows cactus. For the farming scenery, see Cactus (plant).

Cacti are a type of Farming patch requiring a single seed to plant, starting at level 55. There are three cactus patches, found in Al Kharid, in the Imperial district in Menaphos, and by the northern totem hotspot on Anachronia. Cacti take 560 minutes to grow. The seed does not need to be used in a plant pot, but can be planted directly into the patch. The patch does not need watering. The patches can all be protected by farmers nearby.

Once the cactus is fully grown, it will continue to grow produce and can be picked every 20 minutes. After completion of the hard set of Desert achievements the cactus patches in Al Kharid and Menaphos will no longer get diseased and will give double cactus spines and potato cactus when harvesting from a cactus or potato cactus.
