Card description

"It's true. I'm prickly on the outside but spongy on the inside."



Cactus' stat of 5HeartPvZH can be a big benefit, especially since it only costs 2SunPvZH. It allows it to be played early in-game, making it hard for many zombie cards to destroy it during those turns. Due to this, using this card as a reliant defensive wall to protect other Team-Up plants behind it, such as Carrotillery can work. Additionally, this plant can easily be abused by buffing its stats with things like Fertilizer. On top of it, having Bullseye will prevent the zombie hero from gaining tricks to immediately take it out. It will also prevent the zombie hero from blocking the attack, so using cards that buff its strength such as Berry Angry will aid it well.


Using zombie cards or tricks that can nullify both its strength and health, such as Pied Piper or Nibble, will be able to prevent it from attacking, as well as being closer to destroying it without needing the "Fight" phase to initiate. Rolling Stone and PvZH Deadly IconDeadly Zombies can destroy it easily as well. Bouncing it with Backyard Bounce will expose the plant it is defending, if there is one, making that plant vulnerable to damage. If Cactus is buffed, consider using Rocket Science, as its high health will make it last for a while.




  • Its Bullseye trait may be a reference to its role as a sniper in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare.
