Item details

3 PURPLE PRICKLY PEAR PADS to grow your own cactus garden! Santa Rita Prickly Pear is a striking purple cactus with light lemon flowers.

“The purple prickly pear is noted for the waxy "bluish" gray stem color and the purple colorings along the edges of the stems.” Purple coloring comes and goes with the seasons and is a brighter purple when the plant is stressed by heat and drought.

This will give you your own CACTUS GARDEN to amaze your friends with these strange and unique plants. They are HARDY, they FLOWER (different flower colors for different species), you can EAT THEM (jellies, beverages...), WILDLIFE love them, they are EASY TO CARE FOR and this species turns a beautiful PURPLE when they are stressed (during hot weather, during droughts)!

* Be sure to click through all the great pictures!


YOU WILL RECEIVE:
🌵 3 cactus pads (not whole plant shown)
🌵 Planting instructions.
🌵 Potted pictured is example submitted by a buyer. No pot included.
🌵 Cactus pads vary in color depending on season. They can range from a bluish green to bright purple depending on how hot it is here and when our last ran was.


* Common Name: Santa Rita Prickly Pear, Purple prickly pear
* From: southern Arizona, southern New Mexico, southwestern Texas, and in northern Sonora, Mexico
* Care: very tolerant of the heat and dry conditions. “This plant is well suited for a place in your sunny garden.”
* Size of plant: “can be at least 5 to 6 feet wide and over 5 feet in height”
* Flowers: “flower color is a light lemon yellow and usually opens in the month of May”
* Cold Hardy - when plant is fully mature and grown in zones 8-11

* SEVEN species of prickly pear grown here on my land in Arizona! I cut them to order and send them to you pronto.

* Please SEE MY OTHER LISTINGS for all the types of cactus I have available. Additional cuttings for sale can be found by going to my store and clicking on: http://www.etsy.com/shop/LookingSharpCactus then click on the folder "cactus succulents" on the left. I DO CUSTOM ORDERS! Just convo me.


Very easy to care for. Just plant in dry soil (outside or in a container) in full or partial sun, and water only after the roots have come out in a few weeks. Some water once in a while is about all they require. Almost the only way to kill cactus is to never ever water it, water it all the time or freeze it completely.

If you live in a cold area of the country I would suggest planting 1 pad per pot and keeping them on the porch or inside by a window until the weather warms up again. Plant in any type of soil as long as you let the soil dry out completely before you water it again.

These species all grow at my house outside and we get a light dusting of snow. They just won't tolerate the cold until they are a bit bigger.

If you have turtles, tortoises, iguanas, bearded dragons... they will love to eat cactus pads. Especially when the pads are just starting to grow and the new pads are soft and green. You can make yourself jellies and prickly pear lemonade from the cactus fruit!

USE CAUTION WHEN HANDLING AND WEAR LEATHER GLOVES OR USE KITCHEN TONGS TO AVOID GLOCHIDS (HAIRLIKE SPINES).

SHIPS SUPER FAST! Please purchase a heat pack from me if you are shipping in extremely cold weather. You can also have your packages held for pickup at the local post office to keep them off your hot/cold doorstep.

* I ship with FAST USPS Priority Mail.
Contact me if you need a rush order. Otherwise I will ship in 3-5 days since I personally hand make each and every order.
Unless you request otherwise, I will ship all orders containing plants Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday so they don't end up sitting in a post office or postal truck over the weekend.


*** I usually ship with USPS Priority Flat Rate boxes but I can get you a quote to ship with a Regional Rate box or another shipping method depending on weight and how many pads I can fit in a box. **

I cut your bottle using professional lapidary equipment. Some of which I inherited from my beloved late grandpa Pop pop. As a teenage he started teaching me. Now I'm gown with children of my own. I'm using what he taught me to make a living while I take a break from teaching to be with my little ones. His professional equipment and and my attention to detail is why my bottles have such beautiful, safe edges. PLEASE ZOOM IN on the photos and see how beautiful the edges are on my professionally cut bottles! I take pride in my work and this is a gift you will be proud to send. FYI this glass was not originally intentioned for it's new purpose in life so PLEASE HAND WASH AND DO NOT PUT IN THE DISHWASHER. Enjoy!

Estimated Shipping
Shipping to
Zip or postal code

Items typically ship in 3-5 business days. If expedited shipping is needed, please contact me for details.

I ship on Mondays, Tuesdays and sometimes on Wednesdays. If you request that I ship your item on a specific day I can, but please keep in mind that orders which include live plants need to arrive asap. Plants do not do well if they end up sitting at the post office, or in a postal truck, on a weekend or postal holiday.

SHIPPING COSTS:
**Does it look like Etsy is charging too much for shipping? **
Shipping charges are calculated by Etsy using total weight, box size, distance traveled from Arizona and shipping method selected. I don't make money on shipping! If shipping charges seem excessive try adding the item to your cart so you can see all the different shipping options. For bulk orders please contact me and I can look at ways to reduce the cost such as combining your items for shipment, shipping extremely heavy orders with FedEx or using a slower shipping method. Contact me before your items ship and I will do my best to combine your items for shipping. I can't know exact shipping charges until your items are handcrafted and packaged. If you are overcharged for shipping by Etsy I will refund the difference once your order is packaged for shipment. :)

WHEN WILL MY ORDER ARRIVE?
Most items are hand made after your order comes in. Please check the production time on each item to see how long before I can ship your item.
I use USPS Priority Mail which usually takes 2-4 business days to arrive depending on your location, but these times are NOT guaranteed by USPS. You can also purchase Priority Mail Express shipping at checkout. Sorry but I can't be responsible if the shipping company delivers late so please order in time for your special event.

WHAT HAPPENS IF MY PACKAGE IS LOST OR DAMAGED DURING SHIPPING?:
***I can NOT be responsible for a package once I ship it.*** I'm very sorry if the shipping company looses your package or damages it! It rarely happens but if it does we will need to file an insurance claim (if you shipped with insurance) and then WAIT for the claim to be paid before I can ship a replacement item. Sorry but I'm a stay at home mom and I cannot afford to pay for a replacement item and new shipping. As a potential solution, you can buy a replacement item while we wait on the claim review and I can ship the replacement as soon as possible to your gift recipient. Then you can use the claim money to pay yourself back for the first item. Again this is a rare occurrence and I understand your frustration! I cannot be financially responsible for an item once it leaves my hands.

PLEASE BUY SHIPPING INSURANCE:
If you buy shipping insurance I will replace your bottle if it arrives broken by the post office. You can buy shipping insurance by selecting "Priority Mail" which already has insurance included. USPS Ground shipping does NOT include insurance. If you want to ship with cheaper USPS Ground shipping please convo me BEFORE your purchase please. I can make you a custom order for a few dollars more to cover adding shipping insurance to your order. If your item arrives broken please let me know with in 3 days of arrival so I can file an insurance claim. Within 3 days of your bottle's arrival I must also have pictures of the box, tracking #, pictures of the broken bottle and pictures of the packaging materials. Once the post office approves the claim (~1-2 weeks) I will send you a new bottle or you can request I send you a refund for the cost of the product AFTER the claim is approved. USPS Priority Mail insurance ONLY covers the cost of the item being shipped and as unfair as it is they do NOT cover the cost of the original shipping as part of the claim. So if the claim is paid you will be paid for the cost of the item but not the price paid in shipping. If you ask me to add insurance to USPS Ground that goes through a different insurance company and in that case usually the cost of the item and the price you paid for shipping IS covered by the claim. Sorry I will help with the claim as much as I can but I can not control USPS or how they handle claims. LUCKILY ITEMS RARELY BREAK BECAUSE I PACKAGE THEM SO WELL! ** If your item does break please do NOT throw away your broken item or the box/packaging material.** The post office may ask you to bring the broken item and box to the post office so they can see it. They may reject the insurance claim if you cannot show them those items! Usually claims go right through but in one case they did ask the buyer to produce those items. Sorry this is something I wish neither of us ever had to deal with!!!

Please be aware of climate conditions in your area at the time you order. MOST PLANTS WILL DIE IF EXPOSED TO TEMPERATURES BELOW 40F. Heat packs can be purchased to travel in your shipment. (NO refunds for buyers who decide to opt out from purchasing a HEAT PACK during the winter months.) I cannot be held responsible for damage in transit due to cold, extreme heat or USPS delays including delayed delivery due to an error in your shipping address. Also USPS will NOT cover damage to plants as part of a claim. Please be aware of weather conditions when ordering. Thank you for understanding.

Please be aware that you are purchasing a living thing and plan accordingly. You need to open the box as soon as it arrives. Plants left in the dark in a box can change colors, elongate and/or DIE.

YOU WILL BE SENT A TRACKING NUMBER. PLEASE WATCH FOR YOUR PLANT'S ARRIVAL AND MAKE SURE IT ISN'T LEFT OUT IN A HOT/COLD MAILBOX/DOORSTEP. You may be able to have the post office hold your boxes for pickup at your local post office.

If you ordered an air plant, depending on your location, they may need to be sprayed with non-chlorinated water daily or dipped in water every other day. So please let your new plant friends out of their box and give them a drink! As you know, too much or too little water, the wrong soil or incorrect lighting can kill a plant so PLEASE SEE INCLUDED CARE SHEETS. Cactus, succulents and air plants are usually VERY tough but even they need a little love and the right care. Sorry but after 48 hours of receiving them I cannot issue any refunds.

I carefully wrap the succulents and cushion them in tissue and/or kraft paper for protection. For my potted items, sometimes soil will get loose from the pot. Simply brush off the plant, replace the soil if needed, and lightly pack it around the roots (never plant air plants in soil). For cactus I would suggest using a plastic spoon to safely replace the soil and handling the cactus every so gently with tongs or leather gloves if you feel the need for direct contact.


Ensure that your correct address is listed on Etsy and Paypal and that those addresses match each other because that address is where I'm sending your package unless you specify that this order is a gift and you want it sent to a separate address. Because of the perishable nature of my products, shipments to incorrect addresses will void any and all guarantees. If you accidentally ship to an incorrect address, and if the item(s) are returned to me, the buyer would be responsible for the additional shipping charges to re-ship the item. I can provide you with your tracking number but you will need to contact the shipping company if your package has not arrived or shipped to your old address.

The shipping cost is automatically calculated at checkout based on the zip code of the shipping destination provided and includes postage, delivery confirmation, online tracking, packaging/handling and standard USPS insurance. You will receive an email notification when your order has shipped. For orders greater than $100 I can add additional insurance. You are responsible for letting me know if you'd like a signature confirmation or insurance on your order for an additional cost.


For items with live plants, shipping is only available to the 48 contiguous states. Live plants cannot ship to APO, AE, or any other military addresses; PO Boxes; any international address.

CUSTOMS AND IMPORT TAXES:
Buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply. I've heard from buyers that countries like the UK do charge an import tax. Sorry I have no way of finding out if you will be charged an import tax or how much it would be. I'm not responsible for delays due to customs.


Payments

All purchases and reserve listings must be paid within 3 days. Non-payment will result in cancellation of your custom listing and your order will return to my shop.

I accept PayPal and Direct Checkout (where you can pay with: Visa, Master Card, American Express, and Discover cards).

I am located in Arizona so a sales tax of 6.1% is automatically added to all sales shipped to a Arizona address.

For CUSTOM ORDERS I require payment in full before I start handcrafting your order. **Custom orders can not be canceled or returned for a refund.** This means I cannot issue a refund for an item that was created as a custom order for you. This includes orders for metal address planters since they need custom numbers/lettering. This policy also includes orders for items bought in bulk and for custom orders where I had to order special components to fill your order such as ordering bulk succulents, favor tins ect. This is because I cannot resell items that were specifically made/altered for your order and I cannot return items that I had to buy in bulk to produce your order. Thank you for understanding.

I go out of pocket for all of my expenses. Orders that are canceled really hurt my tiny budget. If you order custom lettering or numbering and I have already produced the numbering/lettering or the custom product I won't be able to cancel and refund you order once it has been created. Also if you cancel your order there is a 15% CANCELLATION FEE. Often I start on an order as soon as it comes in. So even if you cancel within minutes of ordering I often have started on the item and added a drainage slit, de-labeled the bottle, added vinyl wording... Now the item is ready for "your" order but if you cancel your order I may not be able to find a buyer for this now altered item. If you cancel I loose money on the Etsy listing fee, my materials, labor and packaging... 15% really doesn't cover the Etsy fees and other costs I've incurred because you canceled your order. I'm not a big company but a stay at home mom who makes everything from scratch and goes out of pocket on the supplies for your order. I appreciate your understanding!


Returns & exchanges
I gladly accept returns and exchanges
Contact me within: 14 days of delivery
Ship items back within: 30 days of delivery
I don't accept cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
Conditions of return
Buyers are responsible for return shipping costs. If the item is not returned in its original condition, the buyer is responsible for any loss in value.
Additional return information
Your purchase is refundable if you are unhappy but unfortunately shipping costs and other fees are not refundable. Just mail back your product, at your expense, and I can send you a different item or I can give you a refund. To order another item instead you would need to pay shipping on the new item. The item being returned must be in it's original condition for me to issue you a refund. Please return in original box/packaging materials. Please purchase insurance with your return shipping just in case your item breaks on it's way back to me. I can't resell a broken item so I can't refund your order unless you ship me back an item in original /unbroken condition. There is a 20% RESTOCKING FEE on returned items in original condition. (See additional policies about custom orders and canceled orders under the "payment" section above.). I really didn't want to charge a restocking fee but Etsy still charges me fees on your order, even if it is returned/refunded to you. I'm just a mom working from home while taking care of her little ones. It's rare that someone returns an item but even so I can't afford to eat all the expenses when they do... :(

I take pride in what I make and I want you to be happy! Please give me the chance to make it right before you leave negative feedback.

Additional policies

For the sake of my sanity and because I'm chasing 2 very little children, PLEASE NOTE THE IMAGES IN MY LISTINGS ARE SAMPLE PHOTOS taken by me over the years. Alcohol bottles and their labels change over time and may vary slightly from these sample photos.

SORRY BUT NO PLANT IS GUARANTEED TO LOOK EXACTLY LIKE ITS LISTING PHOTOS, AND NOT LOOKING LIKE THE PHOTO IS NOT A BASIS FOR A REFUND. I would have to take photos of each plant daily because they are living things and go through changes. Some cactus, most succulents, and some tillandsias (air plants) change color depending on sun exposure or lack of, hot or cold temperatures, and stress. They also have varying bloom and propagation cycles which will affect their appearance. So they may be in bloom in the photo but may not arrive in bloom to your house. No worries, take good care of them and I bet you see them bloom during their next bloom cycle. The pictures just show you what they will look like when they bloom.

If you need a larger quantity than I have listed, please send me a convo and I will quote you a price.

Labels on glass bottles:
The quality of bottle labels can not be guaranteed because we are giving new life to a used bottle that otherwise would have spent nearly 1 million years in a landfill! True! If the quality of the label or the color of the foil on the bottle neck is important please let me know and I will do my best to find a bottle that is just right for you.

Glass bottles:
Each bottle is a hand-worked piece of art and as such each bottle is slightly different in color, wall thickness, shape.... I spend long hours sanding and polishing my bottles, and I take pride in them, but some will have a very small imperfection here and there on the edge from the LONG and labor intensive process of upcycling your bottle. I cut your bottle using professional lapidary equipment. Some of which I inherited from my beloved grandpa Pop pop. My professional equipment and attention to detail is why my bottles have such beautiful safe edges. PLEASE ZOOM IN on the photos and see how beautiful the edges are on my professionally cut bottles! I take pride in my work and this is a gift you will be proud to send.
FYI this glass that was not originally intentioned for it's new purpose in life so PLEASE HAND WASH AND DO NOT PUT IN THE DISHWASHER. Enjoy!
