About this item

TEDDY BEAR CHOLLA


The Teddy-bear Cholla (Opuntia bigelovii) is a cactus native to California, Nevada, and Arizona (USA) and northwestern Mexico. They grow in desert regions at elevations from 30 to 600 m (100 to 2000 ft). It is an attractive plant, having a soft appearance due to its solid mass of very formidable spines that completely cover the stems. From a distance, the stems appear soft and fuzzy, giving it the name "Teddy bear". The Teddy-bear Cholla is an erect plant, standing 1-2 m (3-5 ft) tall with a distinct trunk. The branches are at the top of the trunk and are nearly horizontal. Lower branches typically fall off, and the trunk darkens with age. The silvery-white spines, which are actually a form of leaf, almost completely obscure the stem with a fuzzy-looking, but are an impenetrable, defense. Be careful when handling. Use tongs or some other gripping tool; not hands or gloves.


Recommended Sunset Magazine Temperature Zone: 10-13

Frost Tolerance: Hardy to 5°F (-15°C)


Don't water Prickly Pear Cacti until they grow roots. It may take 30-60 days. If you water while they are in the soil before roots, they may rot. However, even though the pad may look dead, it may grow a new pad within a year. It does not matter which way they are planted. However, you typically get roots faster when they are laying flat on the soil. The down side of the pad will begin to grow roots.
