Re: Opuntia basilaris white flower

Hello Makleodss
As to finding a white flowered plant it really is a case of keep looking and asking around.. I have been told that some plants can have the odd white petal but they too are rare.
However keep looking ................. All the best Roger. :cool:

Opuntia basilaris white flower

How many of you have seen a white flowered or flecks of white in a basilaris flower. Also how many types of basilaris are there ?
Big question where can I buy one in the UK ? and perhaps a cristate or even a hybrid.
Many Thanks Roger Mann :cool:

Re: Dark green plants

Thanks to everyone who has answered my question. Acid John I do agree with you that the growers are doing something to get a good looking plant quickly............but what ? To my mind the plants are drinking some enhancer. What would do this ????????? Thanks Roger. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
