Garden by the Bay has the new Cactus garden in the outdoor section. You can see giant cactus a storey high and fat ones too.

Here are just a sample and you have to see them yourself. The daytime is going to be very hot, they have giant fans but hey it's suppose to be a desert.

- They are tall and bug, different types.
