Cacti live in hot, dry conditions where most other plants would die. They can store large amounts of water to keep them alive through long droughts.
Cacti are very easy to take care of. They will tolerate lower light conditions, but thrive in sun, and need very little water. The biggest risk is over watering which will turn them to mush. Try to make your cacti believe they are in the desert.
They rarely have leaves, because leaves mean moisture loss. Instead many have developed hard spikes, which minimise evaporation and keep animals away.
