This is a very rare crested specimen of Opuntia ‘Santa Rita’ purple prickly pear cactus. This listing is for one gorgeous rooted Opuntia ‘Santa Rita’ cactus succulent plant pad.
Important: the picture of the larger, mature mother plant is for reference only, the plant for sale is one rooted pad from that specific plant.

This listing is for one real live rooted cactus pad, currently growing in a 6” pot. The plant pictured is the plant for sale. Plant ships bare-root, without the pot. 

This cactus can grow quickly, especially when planted in ground. If planted in a container, the cactus size will be more contained. Pads can be removed to start new plants or keep cactus pruned.

This rare cactus plant turns a deep purple in cold temperatures or extensive sun exposure. Great potted plants, even here in the Southwest.

Handling tips: Wet the pad before planting (keeps the tiny hair-like prickers from flying) and use kitchen tongs - with rubber covers over the tips - to handle the pads without scarring them while repotting.

Plant Details and Tips for Proper Care. Research and observe your plant. Adjust these tips as your zone and plant requires.
