The new Desert Gems cacti glimmer in five spectacular hues.

The Desert Gems collection is perfect for adding a bold splash of color to any indoor space; they’re plants almost anyone can grow successfully.

People who love color have a new choice to brighten their homes and offices: colorful cacti in emerald green, amethyst purple, ruby red, carnelian orange, and topaz yellow.

Desert Gems is the newest collection from Costa Farms, a consistent innovator of houseplants. These cacti “bloom” in five bold and bright shades that look more colorful than any indoor plants that consumers have seen before.

However these “blooms” aren’t flowers. Desert Gems are brightly colored cacti that kick the category up a notch, making them great accessories for the board room to the classroom.

“The Desert Gems collection is perfect for adding a bold splash of color to any indoor space; they’re plants almost anyone can grow successfully,” says Justin Hancock, garden expert at Costa Farms. “Desert Gems make cacti fun and friendly.”

Dazzling As Décor
“These cacti are colorful without flowers,” says Hancock. “The five hues in the collection make these plants ideal accents for any décor — from traditional to modern to eclectic.” Desert Gems complement any room: home, office, or even a college dorm. Group them in multiples—in one color or mixing several—for a bigger show.

At the office, use Desert Gems to add color to a reception area or sales desk, a cubicle, or a conference room. At home, these little guys will splash some cheer on the kitchen counter, along a mantelpiece, or in an entryway.

Easy to Grow
“You can grow Desert Gems even if you don’t have a green thumb,” says Hancock. “Cacti are some of the easiest plants to care for.”

Hancock suggests keeping them in a sunny window or room. “Other than giving them some water once every two to three weeks, that’s really all these little gems need,” Hancock adds. Desert Gems are slow-growing plants that require little attention. The soil has everything these gems need to flourish. They don’t even need to be pruned or shaped.

Gift Giving
Live plants make great gifts for the holidays or any occasion. “Desert Gems make wonderful presents,” says Hancock. “They’re just the right size and price for teachers, to say thank you or I’m thinking of you, or a small, thoughtful holiday or house warming present.”

Consider them as easy “starter plants” for the budding gardener too. With their low-maintenance and water requirements, anyone can learn about nature while having success in making their Desert Gems grow.

Desert Gems will have limited availability in home improvement stores, mass merchandisers and supermarkets.
