Is it bad to have cacti in the house?

What makes a cactus a good houseplant?
If you’re considering starting your houseplant collection, a cactus is the perfect beginner indoor plant. They’re not one to fuss over a watering schedule or humidity levels and so won’t hold a grudge if you’re a little forgetful sometimes.
Cacti are known for being sun loving plants. They will very easily thrive with minimal upkeep, while the perfect spot for a cactus is by any window that gets a lot of sunlight. An indoor cactus needs less sun than those in the wild, so don’t worry about your cactus in the winter months when there isn't much sunlight: he’ll be fine, as long as you put him by a window, where he can soak up the sun to his heart’s content.
Which cactus should I choose for my home?
Carlos the cactus is a tall house cactus who looks straight out of a Western film. Place him by any window or in a sunny conservatory and he’ll thrive. He’s also practically indestructible - well, unless you overwater him.
If you’re after a smaller cactus, the spiral cactus is up your street. Unusual in shape (if you stare at it too long we can guarantee your eyes will go funny), he’s perfect for a windowsill or on a desk.
