This Opuntia sulphurea A-Clone has long white curly spines on large balloon shaped pads. It is very slow growing, producing only a few new pads per year. The flowers are bright sulphur yellow. You are bidding on one pad. The pads are very heavy. Use paper not gloves when handling. Sections fall off almost to the touch.

This is how we plant our opuntia pads. Just lay them flat on top of the
soil. The side facing down will grow roots. This is how they propagate
in the wild: a browser knocks a loose pad to the ground. The pad has
enough succulent tissue to lay there until roots grow long enough to
bring in moisture from the ground. New pads will grow from the edges of
the grounded pad and form a new mound. We have not had much luck placing
one end into the soil.
