Cactus is a naturally spawned plant in desert biomes.
It is renewable, as it can grow. It will grow up to 3 blocks tall.
Cactus will break if there is a block next to it, or if it's not on top of sand or another cactus block.
All mobs will take damage if they collide with a cactus. This makes for a good mob trap, especially for spiders, who will try to climb it.
Unlike a lava trap, a cactus trap will also loot their victims.
If the player tries to walk throught cactus they will take damage on survival mode, unless they are crouching.
You can smelt the cactus to create green dye, which is used to color White cloth.
