* SEVEN species of prickly pear grown here on my land in Arizona! I cut them to order and send them to you pronto.

* Please SEE MY OTHER LISTINGS for all the types of cactus I have available. Additional cuttings for sale can be found by going to my store and clicking on: http://www.etsy.com/shop/LookingSharpCactus then click on the folder "cactus succulents" on the left. I DO CUSTOM ORDERS! Just email me.


Very easy to care for. Just plant in dry soil (outside or in a container) in full or partial sun, and water only after the roots have come out in a few weeks. Some water once in a while is about all they require. Almost the only way to kill cactus is to never ever water it, water it all the time or freeze it completely.

If you live in a cold area of the country I would suggest planting 1 pad per pot and keeping them on the porch or inside by a window until the weather warms up again. Plant in any type of soil as long as you let the soil dry out completely before you water it again.

These species all grow at my house outside and we get a light dusting of snow. They just won't tolerate the cold until they are a bit bigger.

If you have turtles, tortoises, iguanas, bearded dragons... they will love to eat cactus pads. Especially when the pads are just starting to grow and the new pads are soft and green. You can make yourself jellies and prickly pear lemonade from the cactus fruit!

THIS SPECIES IS ALMOST SPINES BUT USE CAUTION WHEN HANDLING AND WEAR LEATHER GLOVES OR USE KITCHEN TONGS TO AVOID GLOCHIDS (HAIRLIKE SPINES).

SHIPS SUPER FAST! Please purchase a heat pack from me if you are shipping in extremely cold weather. You can also have your packages held for pickup at the local post office to keep them off your hot/cold doorstep.

 

SHIPPING:

*** I usually ship with USPS Priority Flat Rate boxes but I can get you a quote to ship with a Regional Rate box or another shipping method depending on weight and how many pads I can fit in a box. **
