Opuntia Burbank Spineless

For a unique and resilient addition to your collection, consider the Opuntia Burbank Spineless, a prickly pear cactus renowned for its flat pads and lack of spines. This hardy survivor embraces drought-tolerant characteristics, making it an ideal choice for those who sometimes forget to water their plants. Allow the soil to dry out completely between watering sessions to witness the Opuntia Burbank Spineless thrive in all its glory. Cacti need to be in a bright position and thrive better with some sun during the day.

Thriving in medium to bright indirect light, this resilient plant is perfect for those seeking a touch of sophistication without the fuss. With its low-maintenance nature, the Rojo Congo is a testament to the beauty that can flourish effortlessly in your living space.
