Always a bright spot in the desert garden. About 12” in diameter now. #lasvegas #goldenbarrel #goldenbarrelcactus #cactus #cactus-barrel #cactus-obsessed #cactuslover #yellowcactus #desertbarrelcactus #desertplant #desertlove

Omg SAME. I always have to be VERY AWARE of where all my body parts are in relation to my surroundings. 😱 It's the worst around the opuntias bc of their vicious glochids! 😩

@beatnikcrab I tried not to plant a lot of Opuntias for that reason. Also I won’t get a cactus with the fishhook spines. I love them but they end up in my hand if I go near them!

Same! The opuntias just happened, bc they're EVERYWHERE here. Besides a few rare (and largely spineless) collector varieties I've never bought an Opuntia, but I've still ended up with a few spiny ones as free cuttings. 🤷🏻‍♀️ I won't buy anything with fishhook spines, and I will set on fire with great prejudice anything with barbed spines. 😬😂
