About this item
Opuntia polyacantha cv. Desert Delight is a very cold hardy cactus from the Western USA that has small thick pads that turn almost black in cool weather. Opuntia polyacantha cv. Desert Delight has 2-3 inch wide pink flowers in the spring. This cactus loves full sunlight and is cold hardy to at least 0 degrees F. You are bidding on the one pad. Beware of the barbed spines and glochids. Use paper not gloves when handling. Sections fall off almost to the touch; just plant them. Please read our FAQ in our cactusbylin store.

<h3 align="center">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.</h3>
