Opuntias gone wild!
My Spineless Prickly Pear Cacti (Opuntia engelmannii var subarmata) are at it again sprouting new pads! Is this normal???? Y’all… I have never fertilized these, not when I planted them, and not since. It is bizarre to me as I do not see other ones around here sprouting new pads right now. I started these as single pads in the summer. I am thinking in a year they will be beasts! If you want a particularly hardy, spineless, and prolific opuntia, it appears this is the one for you! It is the one for me.
