Cactus patch

Cactus patches are a type of Farming patch requiring a single seed to plant, starting at level 55. There are four cactus patches, found in Al Kharid, in the Imperial district in Menaphos, by the northern totem hotspot on Anachronia, and Het's Oasis. 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 Desert achievements, the cactus patches in Al Kharid, Menaphos, and Het's Oasis will no longer get diseased and will give double cactus spines and potato cactus when harvesting from a cactus or potato cactus.
