Do cactuses really contain water?
A homogeneous fluid in a set of interconnected containers balances out to the same level in all of the containers regardless of their shape. The communicating vessels principle gives birth to cactus as well. Water flows, falls, floods and, above all, designs. cactus is a simple carafes set made of borosilicate glass, a transparent and liquid material as water is.
cactus and ultraviolet belong to COMMUNICATING VESSELS collection.
