Opuntia Hardy Species - Hardy Prickly Pear - 25 Fresh Seeds

Opuntia - Prickly Pear - Hardy Mixed Species

This listing is for a pack of 25 seeds.

Requiring a different seed raising regime than most other cactus species, the prickly pears are covered here. Drawn from around 30 species of Prickly Pear (Opuntia), these species originate from the USA and include species on the most northerly extremes of the cactus range. Most will be low growing, necessary in habitat to survive the winter snows. Characterised by the jointed nature of growth, these cacti will (contrary to popular myth) flower regularly where happy. In order for this to occur, a cold dry winter rest must be given and then the plant coaxed back into growth in the mid - late spring. This will ensure a good flush of flowers in adult specimens.

As with any seed mix it is impossible to assure that perfect blending has occurred but cultivation experience has shown that a minimum of 12 - 15 different species can be expected from this mix and that higher numbers are possible in some cases. It is not possible to ensure that you will get 25 different species in the mix.
