Cactus Plant Mature Prickly Pear ‘Snow’.
An unusual, very fuzzy cactus.
Weight 1 lbs
The Mature Prickly Pear ‘Snow’ or Opuntia ‘Snow’ is an unknown, unusual species or cultivar collected in Guerrero, Mexico.
It is also known as the Opuntia Erinacae Ursine. This very unique prickly pear is covered with white hair. At maturity it can reach 5 feet in height and 3 feet in width. The Snow White Prickly Pear cactus can tolerate moderately cold nights that get down to the low twenties. This temperature can not be survived if it is sustained for a long period of time. Opuntias, the prickly pear family of cacti, can be used in many different ways. They are great as an addition to your landscape., The prickly pear family can be used as a very nice contrast to other cacti and succulents. Prickly pears are also very low maintenance. They will tolerate the hottest areas of your landscape. The prickly pear family also thrives on very little water and can take very cold overnight temperatures.
Cactus plants are among the hardiest, most drought-tolerant in the world and very easy to maintain, as long as they are planted in a porous cactus/succulent soil, given proper drainage, daily bright light, and not over watered. Water whenever the soil is very dry several inches below the surface. Water deeply, but don’t let them sit in wet soil, which can cause root rot.
You will receive 1 well-established, rooted plant, from an 8 inch diameter 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.
