I was so worried about this big af guy. Its so droopy and heavy but its growing so i guess hes ok and will just need a lil help being propped up. So much #newgrowth #pricklypear I cant believe they can stay outside for a pgh winter. I didn't try it tho lol

I thought this was a little caterpillar crawling on it but omg its a new pad! Lile wrapping around the paddle? Weird but so cute. It also has a new growth u can see the brighter green in the background. I really hope this starts to plump up and stand up straight come summer. But it's droopy but is growing so thats a good sign #newgrowth #pricklypear

Its so cute to see this tiny baby in this giant #pricklypear scroll back to see how big it is. I hope it stops drooping once summer comes. I know they can because I can even grow them outside here in pa they just fold over on themselves to protect from the cold. We will see how it fares once outside in the sun #newgrowth

So cute! Giz sitting cutely in my giant #pricklypear pot. Looking out his window. There's birds outside this door that I swear taunt him. Theres an old nest about the light fixture out there and I guess they are reusing it. Didnt think they did that #gizmo #6toegizmo #petsofgt #wildlifewednesday #themobros
