The Cactapedia (Cactus Encyclopedia)
CodingCactus (2118)

Was originally, just a bit of a joke, but I decided to continue it a bit more, because pretty much anything is better than just sitting around during lock down.

So, here is the beginning of The Cactapedia. I started with doing lots of cacti alphabetically (2), but then decide to just do the ones that I thought looked pretty cool.

Here is @ChezCoder's version of it, with extra JS functionality:

Edit: Added Prickly Pear (Opuntia ficus-indica). Suggested by @NoelBryan.
Edit2: Added Cylindropuntia cholla. Suggested by @ipastrano.
Edit3: Added Parodia leninghausii. Suggested by @LizFoster.
Edit4: Added Candelabra Cactus (Myrtillocactus Cochal), Corynopuntia Invicta, Red Torch Cactus (Echinopsis Huascha). Suggested by ME.
Edit5: Added Astrophytum asterias. Suggested by @Warhawk947.
Edit6: Added more readable font option on home page. Suggested by @Nettakrim.
Edit7: Added Golden Barrel (Echinocactus grusonii) and Hedgehog Cactus (Echinocereus engelmannii). Suggested by @IndyCarter.
Edit*: Added Peyote (Lophophora williamsii). Suggested by @DannyIsCoding

Any suggestions for cacti to be added are more than welcome :)
