Wow that’s stunning Diane (tu)

Mine also has its second flush today. Amazing how in sync they seem to be.

Re: Small Opuntia ID’s please

Good point Ralph I never thought of that! I purchased mine from the Cactusshop in Devon last year.

Re: Small Opuntia ID’s please

Thanks Tony I think you’re right. I did wonder as they do look similar to the rest of my fragilis hybrids. I guess I’ll know more when they eventually flower.

Re: Small Opuntia ID’s please

Thanks Mike, that was my thought too. Both are in full sun for about 10 hours a day. I have a few other basilaris that all have the usually blue / green tingle which is why I had my doubts about this one. Will wait for flowers to see if that clears things up a bit :)

That's good that know, thank you. I won't spend the summer in a vain hope that my larger fragilis will flower then!
:grin: I know the feeling! I have a bunch of small fragilis types that I was hoping would flower this year but it seems they prefer to put out pads and grow a little first.

Re: Opuntia grown outside - progress.

Thanks edds, I doubt it but there is always a chance! In my experience with most opuntia though is flowers before new pads or at least at the same time.
