are one of my favorites, because they have very interesting geometric shapes, they can grow in small pots (you can get creative with this. I've planted cacti in teacups that have broken and look beautiful) and require virtually no care.

As they are so small, they are perfect for amortizing vertical space: take advantage of shelves and shelves to put them. For example, you have this circular set ready to hang.
