So strong are these spines that they are often picked off and used as toothpicks, earning it the highly appropriate name of the ‘Toothpick Cactus’.

‘As the owner of PRICK, London’s first cacti and succulent shop, Gynelle is a beacon of change and a much needed new face in the world of horticulture.
Previously working in forensic science, Gynelle left behind her old life, sold her flat and turned a wishful idea into a contemporary white-walled sanctuary where time and the stress of city-life seem to not exist.
Located on East London’s Kingsland Road – the shop feels somewhat like a gallery. Small plants sit on plinths, big plants are displayed as though sculptures.
Born in Dagenham but raised between England and her parents birthplace St Lucia – Gynelle is a genuine advocate of nature and an entrepreneur in every sense of the word’.
