@hannahchristine this is would it looks like outside during the winter 🥶. We will see what it does this spring. My first year for it. I pass a house in my area that has a lot of them. And they look the same right now.
@sushiwaitress. They were given to me by someone that had them outside in the ground here in Ohio. So I’m trying them outside in the ground. A gtager on here from Connecticut had a neighbor plant theirs in the ground.
@gjones a person from work gave them to me. I cut off the best parts. Which if you scroll back on the pics you will see them cut. The Person that give them to me said they can stay out side all winter. So a couple days after cutting them by the suggestion of folks here on gtag I planted them straight into the ground in a very sunny spot.
Hello! Handle it carefully as it is very prickly. I had an opuntia that l grew it from a cutting as you did. I had it for many years but l decided to get rid of it because every time l touched it, l got hurt by its tiny thorns. It was really painfull
Someone at work gave me some prickly pear cactus. She said they can stay outside all year. I cut off what looked good. I’m going to see if I can get them to take root inside first. If they do I plan to try it planted in the ground next spring.
@ambitiouswolf I got a piece of this too and I tried it indoors and is turning brown on the top,I spoke to a lady who runs a farm and she said to just throw it in garden and it will take or you can just stick it in the dirt. My neighbor stuck hers in garden and it looks great..compared to mine .
@mojosmomma Looks like you run between 5-7 depending where in the state you are. I’m 5-6. So very similar. I was worried about just putting them in the ground when they don’t have any roots. I thought they might get to rot if it rains before they take root.
