Plant a cactus seed in the cactus patch in Al-Kharid, which takes about 9.3 hours to grow. Once fully grown, it can be harvested for cactus spines. The minimum yield is always three, higher farming levels yield a higher average, but at 99 farming, the average is around ten spines. Spines can be harvested once every 25 minutes, up to a total of three spines every 75 minutes.
Cactus spines are used to make weapon poison(+) and to pay farmers to care for yew trees. To get to the patch, simply use a ring of dueling or an amulet of glory to teleport to Al-Kharid. Pick the spines, possibly noting them with the tool leprechaun, and then bank them.
This method works well with other harvesting money-makers, such as picking papayas or coconuts. The 75 minute timer also makes it coincide well with herb-farming runs (which can be done every 80 minutes).
It is strongly recommended to check the live prices on the Grand Exchange before making large investments in any method.
