Strategies

With

Cactus's health of 5 can be a big benefit, especially since it only costs 2 sun. Because of this, it can be played earlier in game, making it hard for your opponent to destroy it during those turns. Its high health makes this card as a reliant defensive wall to protect other powerful Team-Up plants behind it, such as Carrotillery. On top of that, having PvZH Truestrike IconBullseye prevents your opponent from blocking the attack and gaining superpowers to get an advantage. Because of this trait, using cards that boost its strength such as Berry Angry and Fertilize aid it well. If you are playing as Grass Knuckles, try to boost Cactus at a safe strength range of about 3 to get it out of range of most instant-kill tricks. Cactus can also be used as a method to finish off zombies with 1 health left, as its high health allows her to survive most attacks.

Due to it being in the flower tribe since update 1.12.6, it synergizes with Power Flower and Briar Rose. However, only Wall-Knight can do this.

If Pecanolith is on the field, Cactus becomes a 5StrengthPvZH/5HeartPvZH plant with PvZH Truestrike IconBullseye, making it a very potent threat.

Against

Using zombie cards that can lower its strength, such as Pied Piper or Nibble, are able to prevent it from attacking. However, be wary as the Guardian class has access to Spineapple to boost it if the aforementioned methods were used. Tricks that can destroy her such as Rolling Stone and Weed Spray, as well as PvZH Deadly IconDeadly zombies can destroy it easily. Bouncing it with cards such as Backyard Bounce will expose the plant it is defending, if there is one, making that plant vulnerable to damage. If Cactus is boosted, consider using Rocket Science or Locust Swarm, as its high health will make it last for a while. Cactus also needs to be boosted to be at its most efficient level, so using the above methods early are also good.
