How Long Can a Cactus Survive without Water?

Answer

Cactus are succulent desert plants, which can survive for a very long time(there is no documented exact time) without water, because although this plant may show some signs of death when it lacks water, in most cases, it never dies completely, because it stores water. This plant is able to survive in harsh conditions, because it does not have leaves and it has a very fleshy stem, which stores a lot of water.
