While trimming this #Opuntia-cochenillifera, TIMMMMBERRRRR! Top heavy and too much water. I will be using one piece to start a new plant -- in a pot. So many #thorns in me and not even fully picked up. 😣 #opuntia #cactus #damage #southerncalifornia 18 September 2020 😷😣💓

Even with gloves today, Phil, I walked away with some again, but the mess is mostly picked up. 😣 @philstalder

Some of the cactus I will root, Ruth, but I am going to be scaling back on my cactus, especially the giant ones. @sushiwaitress

I love how bright these flowers are. Are these edible cacti? I know that there's a type of cactus that bear edible sweet fruit.

@mi_paraiso , the last time it bloomed, it didn't form any fruit. I realized this had the wrong ID😊, but I did find this: http://growerjim.blogspot.com/2014/11/nopalea-cochenillifera.html?m=1

@lovestogarden it looks like Christmas Cactus. Look it up and see if it looks like your succulent.😀

Thank you, but the plant itself looks much different than the photos I looked at. We shall keep trying!
