Cleistocactus winteri (tarantula cactus) evokes the spirit of the largest of arachnids. Its fuzzy (and spiny) golden stems growing out of a pot look like golden tarantula spiders emerging from their burrow. A surprising number of succulents “spin” their own webs as well. The easy-to-grow Sempervivum arachnoideum (cobweb houseleek) is festooned in cottony hairs, which look like they have been strung together by a real spider.
