@ElieM Is it supposed to be literally spineless? It does have some tiny prickly hairs from some of the areoles, but not most of them. Thank you, btw, for coming to help!

@savannahssucculentgarden a cactus is never truly without spines even the nude ones like these. But just search a standard Opuntia and u will see the difference, the normal spines of Opuntias. This one doesnt have the micro small ones like Opuntia microdasys nor the bigger ones. What I did is essentially giving u a scientific name that u can research on google and browse through to be convinced, or not.
