(This plant comes in a 3.5" pot. You will receive a very similar plant to the one in the picture. It may or may not be blooming at the time of your purchase. The plant is shipped in its pot to prevent any damage to the roots).

Also known as Nopales, Paddle Cactus or Josephs Coat, this vibrant flat shaped cactus
is one of the very few naturally occurring white-variegated variation of the larger Prickly Pear cactus Opuntia monacantha. This cactus is marbled with white, creamy-white, yellow, green and sometimes also with pink in varying patterns.

Sun exposure: Full Sun
Growth habits: Odd shrubby or tree-like plant that forms wonderfully tortured shapes usually less than 50 cm tall, but occasionally up to 1 m or more meters tall. To many it looks stretched or etiolated due to lack of light, but its actually a monstrous form.
Stem: Long, smooth, flattened beautifully green, yellow and pink covered in tiny hair spines.
Watering needs: Outside filtered sunlight or afternoon shade, but tolerate bright sun too, inside it needs bright light, and some direct sun. Subject to sunburn if exposed to direct sun for too long during the hottest hours in mid summer.
Propagation: Cuttings
Blooming habits: Small red flowers

Pros and Cons

The plant was of good quality and well packaged, nice size. It was slow to arrive but that was the fault of USPS and not the shippers. After I made my purchase, I discovered I probably over paid because I found it for cheaper from other sellers.
