Opuntia - Prickly Pear Mixed Species
This listing is for a pack of 100 seeds.Requiring a different seed raising regime than most other cactus species, the prickly pears are covered here. Drawn from around 125 species of Prickly Pear (Opuntia), this is an excellent opportunity to obtain a good selection of species. These will range from small low growing species through to the giants of the dry forest areas of central and south America.
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 40 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 100 different species in the mix.
