Like seaweed swaying in the shifting tide, the Prickly Pear Cactus mimics the relaxing motion of the sea with its undulating growth and kelp-like color. This upright growing cactus builds its form by producing growth from the sides and tops of its stems which creates an eye-catching, complex structure. Given plenty of bright indirect light, this drought-tolerant opuntia will grow more quickly. Remember to rotate your cactus to keep a balanced shape! The sharp spines of the cactaceae can pierce skin, so be very careful when handling the plant, or if you have pets and/or small children.
