Opuntia Snow Fuzzy cutting

This one of a kind Opuntia has a pretty interesting spine texture, soft and fuzzy will develop smooth white fur.

Opuntia is a very large genus of cacti, varying in size from 2 inches tall (5 cm) miniature plants to 100 feet tall (30 m) trees. They are native from Canada, to Chile and Argentina. The genus has been split several times, but there doesn't seem to be a consensus yet on the best way to do that. The name Opuntia comes from the name of a Greek city.

All Opuntias not only have normal spines, but they also have thin barbed spines barely visible, named glochids. These can get stuck in your skin and be very irritating. In some species, they are particularly light and can become airborne when the Opuntia is moved. Wetting the plant before handling it might be good prevention.

Opuntias often have large, colorful flowers. The fruit is also large and generally edible

A favorite!

This Cactus is even cuter than in the pictures. It is a good size and very healthy also very unique -- surely a favourite of mine!

It is much taller than I thought but it has two small sections on top that look like ears that makes it look cute. But it also could look like a mermaid tail.
