Opuntia 'Sunburst' Family: Cactaceae. A nicely variegated prickly pear species. Will continue to make new pads and form a multibranched plant in time. Fortunately this species has only a few glochids (the little spines all Opuntia have) and can generally be handled without getting them stuck in your fingers. Easy to grow. Likes lots of light and well drained soil. Water when nearly dry. Hardy to at least zone 5 (probably zone 4) but make sure to acclimate your plant during the fall so it can harden off properly.
You will receive a plant shown in the last image or one similar. Plant shown in a 4" pot. All plants for sale have at least 2 pads (base pad and one or more top pad).
Important Shipping Information
- PLANTS ARE SHIPPED BARE ROOT If you want me to send them in pots send me a message to discuss. Extra charges due to increased shipping costs will apply.
- Immediate Payment (eBay only) Sorry! I can no longer offer a delayed purchase option as the multichannel inventory management system I have started using requires this setting.
- No Delayed Shipping (eBay only) Once you pay I have to (and WILL) ship within 3 business days or eBay will lower my seller rating. I used to have a way to delay shipping but can no longer do this for the same reason as #2 above. Feel free to message me before buying to see if we can figure something out here, no promises though.
- Winter Shipping If you live in a cold climate consider including a 96 hour heat pack in your order during the cold months. I have them as a listing. Just add it to your order. If you don’t see them just message me.
