🌵 I find that the more mature/older cactus pads root the easiest. Since older cactus pads have been alive the longest it is possible for cactus pads to have slight damage from bird pecks or a tree branch rubbing on them ect. These are still healthy pads and will grow new pads that are unblemished. Cactus pads are living organisms and as such they will vary from each other in size, color...
I have a Department of Agriculture License to sell and ship plants. Be sure when you buy plants online that you buy from someone who has invested the many hundreds of dollars it takes each year to get this license and the Department of Agriculture inspections that go with the license. These inspections prevent the spread of diseases and insects. Plus the license let’s you know you are NOT supporting a cactus thief that illegally took cactus from the wild. All my cactus are grown here in Tucson AZ and NOT stolen from the wild.

* Common Name: Unkown! It's a mystery prickly pear. Perhaps Opuntia sulphurea??? * From: Currently growing in Tucson but mystery origins. South America? * Care: It can be easily rooted from cuttings and requires no special soil or situation. It can take full sun as well as partial shade and is rather fast to establish and grow.” * Size of plant: Low growing, trails along the ground. Has beautiful WHITE spines on elongated green pads. * 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 CONTACT 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. USE CAUTION WHEN HANDLING AND WEAR LEATHER GLOVES OR USE KITCHEN TONGS TO AVOID GLOCHIDS (HAIRLIKE SPINES).
SHIPS SUPER FAST! * I ship with FAST USPS Priority Mail. Contact me if you need a rush order. Otherwise I will ship in 3-5 days since I personally cut and package each and every order. Unless you request otherwise, I will ship all orders containing plants Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday so they don't end up sitting in a post office or postal truck over the weekend. * Some succulents are frost tender and cannot be guaranteed if you or your shipping route is less than 40 degrees. HEAT PACKS ($3) are strongly suggested and can be purchased through my store to ship with your gift. The packs last 72 hours and raise the temperature in the box 10-15 degrees. *** 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. **
