Prickly Pear Santa Rita

| /

Name: Opuntia violacea var. santa rita

AKA: Purple prickly pear

Why we love it: The vivid purple this cacti gets in the winter makes it a stand out from other cacti. 

Light: Bright indirect light to direct light. This plant prefers full sun and a warm space. 

Water: Allow the plant to dry between watering. Do not overwater. 

Pet Friendly? Opuntia cacti are non-toxic to pets but the spikes of the plant can be harmful. 

Plants are sold in their nursery pots. Ceramic pots and baskets are sold separately.
