Well, the Mornington market strikes again...

A couple of weeks ago I picked up a handful of plants including these three Opuntias. Now, I'm fairly sure that #3 is Opuntia subulata monstrose... and if anyone could confirm this, that would be handy as I'm eager to try using it as a novel grafting stock as documented in this thread. However, numbers 1 and 2 are a bit of a mystery to me. I'll be honest, beyond IDing microdasys and getting speared by tunicata, I'm pretty useless at Opuntias. Laughing

Here we go...

#1

#2

#3

Thanks again.

Hmm Opuntia can be tricky...their form varies greatly depending on environment.

1. I dunno but it's the same as one of mine Smile labeled Prickly Pear.

2. Opuntia Compressa ??

3. Definetly Opuntia Subulata Monstrose

I highly recommend grafting something onto that Opuntia Subulata, I'm looking forward to experimenting with mine too. Laughing

I think you got some good finds there Lachy...

The one in the first pic is "Chenille Prickly Pear" or Opuntia aciculata.

Nice trio.

Cheers for that, mate. For four bucks each, I'm certainly happy with them! Very Happy
