$42.00 USD

The prickly pear cactus is a large, trunk-forming, segmented cactus that may grow to 25 feet in the wild! The pads are green to blue-green, bearing few spines up to 1 inch or may be spineless.

Prickly pears typically grow with flat, rounded cladodes (also called platyclades) containing large, smooth, fixed spines and small, hairlike prickles that readily adhere to skin or hair, then detach from the plant.

Cultivate Your Cacti

A cactus is a member of the plant family Cactaceae, which comprises about 127 genera with some 1750 known species of the order Caryophyllales.

Most cacti live in habitats subject to at least some drought, and many live in extremely dry environments. Because of this, cacti show many adaptations to conserve water. For example, almost all cacti are succulents, meaning they have thickened, fleshy parts adapted to store water. Because of this, cacti should be watered extremely infrequently to prevent rot.

Place in a bright sunny spot and let em live! Cacti are easy care and funky additions to the home.
