Experiment success! I planted a few prickly pear cactus seeds from a grocery store fruit and this is the result. This is just under two months old. 29 January 2021

Thank you! I'm excited to see how they will do. So far, the spikes are still soft. @txgardener @cowdenkyle @emch

Those are darling! Are those the first two leaves? I would’ve thought it was some other plant! Well that’s a learning lesson for me, I will be starting a major seed starting project soon, so if they look strange, I won’t be surprised. 🌞🌵

Yes, they have two succulent looking kind of leaves and then in middle of the leaves come the tiny spikes body. @sunlovin

@sunlovin Yes, dragonfruit also starts out with two leaves that look nothing like the adult plant! 😄
