Hey Jenny. I agree 100%. Was at Kew Gardens last August and this display is better than any of the green-houses they have and way better than their South Africa/succulent display.

Good work Kirstenbosch!

Cactus is New World. Think Mexico. Everything in the Kirstenbosch Conservatory is indigenous to South Africa. So no matter how many spines / thorns / prickles it has, it is still not a cactus.
