Cute crested Opuntia microdasyis cactus succulent plant with gold glochids. Very striking and unique specimens.
Dwarf variety of Opuntia, gets 2' tall by 2-3' wide. It will stay even smaller if kept in a pot. Flowers and fruits in Spring / Summer.
You will receive the plant pictured or one almost identical. It is a rooted, well-established cactus currently growing in a 2" container. This cactus ships in pot.
Cactus should be repotted on a warm day, let the roots settle for a day or two in the shade before watering and moving to more sun.
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 cactus without scarring them while repotting.
