Montreal Is Hosting A $5 Mini Cactus & Spring Plants Sale This Week

Prickly plants as far as the eye can see.

If you know me at all, then you know I'm slightly obsessed with plants. Also, you know that pretty much nothing survives after spending a full week with me. Plants die within days. My beloved pet fish lasted a whole eight days (a new personal record). I'm a mess when it comes to taking care of things, basically.

But not cacti. I love cactus plants because they're pretty much the easiest things to take care of - plus, they liven up a space like nothing else can. So you can only imagine how happy I was to learn about UQAM's upcoming cactus sale.

UQAM is holding a cactus sale on April 13 (that's tomorrow!) at their Judith-Jasmin Pavillion (405 Rue Sainte-Catherine E). The sale isn't just about expediting beautiful, Instagram-worthy plants, though: It's being put on in order to help fund students' international internships to Togo, Senegal, and El Salvador, under the QSF program.

Oh, and the best part? Cactus plants are going from $5-$10 each, which is a pretty legit price, considering you're getting a gorgeous cactus plant and the added benefit of helping out university students.
