Item details

Opuntia microdasys, AKA Prickly Pear
Opuntia microdays, native to South America, is one of the more popular cacti known as "Prickly Pears". Shrub- forming with oval joints that are densely covered with short golden spines known as "glochids". Take care not to touch "glochids" ("dots" of minute spines that detach readily and can cause irritation to the skin and eyes). Flowers are lemon yellow to 3" in diameter, usually appearing in late spring or summer. Requires porous cactus soil with adequate drainage. Prefers bright light with ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Protect from frost.

Have fun creating your own container garden, refresh a garden, bouquets, centerpieces and more. The selection may vary due to seasonal availability. You will receive similar like plants from photographs but there might be slight changes due to the season we are in.

Succulents are a pretty hardy group of plants. They store water in their leaves and do well planted in a sandy soil to insure good drainage. They do well outdoors in warmer climates so be sure to bring them indoors if you live in a cooler climate where the temperatures drop to 40. Place them near a sunny window if you plan to keep them indoors.


You will receive 1 well-established, rooted plant, currently growing in a 2 inch pot, sent bareroot and packaged with great care. It will be shipped via USPS Priority mail.

If you are ordering from an area with weather below 32 degrees, please consider purchasing a heat pack.

***************************PLEASE READ INFORMATION*******************************
HERE IS WHERE ALL NEW INFORMATION AND CHANGES WILL BE REGARDNG SHIPPING TIMES.
Shipping occurs 3-6 days but will be adjusted during holidays via USPS 2-3 day priority mail. Once the plant is ordered, we want to make sure that the roots are bare when shipped and dry dirt falls off much easier than wet dirt. Please open your package and unwrap as soon as they arrive. Succulent plants can lose their color and as with all living plants, they really prefer to get out of their boxes and into a good soil mixture. Place where they can get good filtered sun and water only when the soil is dry to the touch. Any of the listings that state plants are shipped bare root means that they are out of the pot and have very little soil. While they can travel that way its best to get them replanted as soon as they get to their new home.
Etsy and PayPal addresses must match. We are not responsible if the package is sent to an incorrect address, so please verify the shipping address. Signature confirmation is not customary but it is a available upon request. Lost or stolen packages are not Succulentbabies responsibility once your order has been shipped.
Another option, if you order please check your ship date. If you need your order sooner than the ship date place a note in your order. I will be happy to try and get it in the mail sooner if possible.

All purchases and reserve listings must be paid for within 3 days unless other arrangements have been made. Non-payment will result in cancellation.

Cancellations with less than a 30 day notice will not receive a deposit back
