Cactus Garden's Signature Plants

Discover over 100 species of cacti and arid plants from Asia, Africa and America at the Cactus Garden in Terminal 1. 

Notable plants featured in this garden include surreal plants like the Golden Barrel Cactus, Old Man Cactus and giant Ponytail Palm Trees, as well as various forms of Cycads—a tenacious survivor of the dinosaur era.

Barrel Cactus

Barrel Cactus

Scientific name: Echinocactus grusonii

The Central America Barrel cacti in the garden are grown under a shelter because they thrive in sunny weather but cannot tolerate rain.

The plants are surrounded by cactus sculptures by American artists Richard Turner and Eric Carroll. The sculptures' rust formations evoke the texture of fibre encrustation on cacti.

Sago Palm

Sago Palm

Scientific name: Cycas revoluta

Sago Palms belong to a group of over 200 species of plants native to Southern Japan. They are primitive plants whose ancestry date back to the Mesozoic Era, about 65–250 million years ago.

These plants are very hardy and thrive in dry climate and even poor soil. Some of the Sago Palms in the garden are more than 50 years old.

Century Plant

Century Plant

Scientific name: Agave americana

Century Plants comprise 200 species that originate from the dry regions of America. They have distinctive sword-shaped and spiny-margined leaves.

The plant dies when it flowers to bear plantlets. The smaller plants seen in this garden are a result of this process. Century Plants are commercially important as their cores are harvested to make Tequila, a popular Mexican alcoholic beverage.
