We work on our house…a lot, which means we visit the HD regularly where I rescue little succulents. This weekend I crossed a line but only for a couple of darling Opuntia. I should not, of course encourage the sale of defaced cacti but this was a named (LOL!) opuntia microdasys albata. I love the white dots, cuter cactus has never been seen IMHO.
On the right you might notice the lack corn/straw flowers. That is because I was able to simply pluck it off while still in the store. OH LOOK! it fell off!
I had to break off a pad to rid the other of the last of the pink stuff. I wonder if they punish kindergarten children somewhere by handing them a glue gun and telling them to just “go for it”! In fact the flowers and the glue combined strain the pads enough to require emergency stakes (see top picture). I am hoping the little one recovers.
