2016 is the first year I have been able to do any gardening. I live in southwestern Ohio, USA. I love roses, orchids, toad lilies...everything 😁

This one has shot up the last week or so. It use to be just under the top clip on the stick. Now it is taller then the stick. 😁

I think this one is etiolated. Especially since you said it's done this in a week. Opuntias do that when they need more light.

@DonNotDonny it had its growth spurt after it got a good drink of water.

I'm not big on cactus. But I do love the hairy ones. I just bought this hairy prickly pear and a local nursery. The tag also has a web site I want to check out. Cactuscollection.com

I like the hairy ones, too. They bring back happy memories of my childhood. Our retired neighbors had a cactus garden in their front yard and were happy to entertain a little girls curiosity

@janelleabella. I have never seen one before. My mom wanted another string of pearls and this one big nursery in my area sales them. So while she was picking out her pearl plant I was looking at the other succulents and cactus. Spotted this hairy prickly pear. It was the only one they had.
