Have you ever heard of a fairy castle cactus?
The mega cute plants are all over social media, and we can't get over how adorable they are.
Also known by its real name of acanthocereus tetragonus, the cute plants look just like the turrets of a castle and people are loving them.
Posting a photo on Reddit, one person said: "Fairly Castle Cactus I saw at a plant shop a few months ago. Was in a part of the shop labeled as not for sale, part of the owner's personal collection.
"I didn't realise what a gem this thing was until I got home and tried to find a picture of one as pretty as this guy online. Looks like a waterfall."
And other Redditors agreed it was breathtaking, while others said they had also been able to get their hands on a fairy castle cactus.
"I picked one up about a month ago and I just love it!" Said one. While another added: "Oh damn that's a gorgeous one!"
And another questioned: "Mine is still small compared to this one ... I wonder how old that plant will be to be that size."
A third said: "I would love to get my hands on a Fairy Castle Cactus. They are just so striking and whimsical to me."
The fairy castle cactus is native to North, South, and Central America, and can incredibly grow up to six feet tall. It is a slow growing plant, and so is pretty low maintenance.
They need plenty of sunlight, little water and will generally thrive in hot weather. Fairy castle cactuses, however, rarely bloom. Not only do they need the perfect growing conditions to flower, but fairy castle cacti do not usually bloom until they are at least 10 years old.
We're definitely on the hunt for one of these!
