Trials Of Mana Li’l Cactus Locations Guide – Chapter V & VI
In Chapter V the game opens up and offers a lot of freedom on which objectives you want to tackle first. The initial objective marker takes you to Chartmoon Tower, so go there first and kill that Benevodon before using the drum to summon Flammie and going to another Benevodon location. When you are on the World Map, open your map and you can see all the locations. Either follow the order we go through or choose your own, either way the Cactus locations are on each map as follows.
When you are hunting the Benevodons, the first objective will lead you to Chartmoon Tower. Climb to the 8th floor, the Cactus can be found there.
As soon as you land, the Cactus is nearby.

Near the first Silver Mana Statue. The Jungle of Visions is one of two different dungeons you may have toward the end of the game. If it’s not Jungle of Visions, it should be another.
After the boss fight against the Dark boss, it’s not far from the next Golden Mana Statue.
When you return to the Sanctuary at the end of the game. The Cactus is here, hiding behind a log.
I’m not sure how early this is available. I completed the game and returned to the starting areas to use the map to try and find the final location. This one may be available much earlier in the game. The entrance to Cascade Cavern can be found just outside Astoria, the ruined town near the beginning of the game.
That’s all locations for Li’l Cactus. The ring reward increases CS as you walk around and the Chain Ability starts all allies in combat with 200% CS.
