Question

do the spines of a cactus have a waxy coating because already their leavs are reduced to spines?


 


Solution

The body of the cactus plant is covered with a waxy coating to prevent water loss.
also the leaves are reduced to spines to prevent water loss
there is no waxy coating on the spines, because there is no need for that. ie there is no use for a waxy coating on a spine.
the change from leaf to spine is not a sudden change, ..... it took thousands of years so as to happen such changes
