But as you say, it’s not an Opuntioid, but is closely related according to cladistics.
I was referring to M.patagonica and it’s variant, hence I used a separate paragraph.

It’s the Maihuenia darwinii v hickenii and T.alexanderi ssp bruchii that are the most shrunk at the moment. The Maihueniopsis still seem to even have turgid leaves.
That’s what I bought the seed as.

At that size I would still treat them as seedlings , NOT plants
