Cactus seed detail

Cactus seeds are a farming seed that can be used to grow cacti. They can be planted in the cactus patches found in Al Kharid or in the Imperial district in Menaphos. They require level 55 Farming to plant and take 9 hours and 20 minutes to grow.

Ayesha or Zahra will look after your seed for 6 cadava berries. After completion of the hard Desert Tasks, the patches will be disease free.

Cactus seeds are dropped by aberrant spectres, cockroach soldiers, dagannoth, desert strykewyrms, ice giants, moss giants, ogres, cave horrors and other monsters. They may also be a reward for cremating vyre corpses, obtained by pickpocketing a master farmer or bought from the Vinesweeper minigame for 1200 points each.
