Originating from Mexico, the Opuntia Schijfcactus is also known as the 'Prickly Pear'. A unique looking cactus and is bound to strike up a conversation in the home. With delicate redish flowers that bloom in summer months, this is like the cousin to the bunny ear cactus.
It has lots of spikes which are called glochids, these are a pain to get out the skin so you must use gloves or newspaper to handle.

She needs bright light and will tolerate less in the winter months.
Water when the top few inches of soil are dry, she likes less water in winter.
