Opuntia quitensis "Johnson's Hybrid" is a shrubby cactus native to Ecuador and Peru. It grows individual branched pads which are obovate and flat. This cactus variety usually stays low to the ground, almost like a ground cover. However, the pads also grow up, sometimes to a height of two feet.

Growth Rate
The pads or stems of this opuntia variety stay on the small side reaching 4-6 inches or slightly bigger.


Flowering
This variety of cacti is known as the "Red Buttons Opuntia" because the the petite red-orange flowers bloom on the tip of the pads, resembling a look of red buttons.


Watering
The Johnson's Hybrid plant is drought-tolerant. However, during the extremely hot summer months, this opuntia appreciates more water more often.


Soil
Just like all cacti, plant your Johnson's Hybrid in a well-draining soil.


Hardiness
This cactus is hardy down to about 30 degrees Fahrenheit. To avoid damage to the pads, protect from frost or below-freezing temperatures.
