Opuntia Titania' in nursery pot : Ø -19cm x h-17cm (Please note that decorative basket is not included) 

The Opuntia 'Titania' is a spineless and spreading variety of cacti with light grass-green pads. The pads are narrow and paddle shaped. It is a medium-growth opuntia. Very easy to keep, great for growing in pots, needs minimal maintenance and is hardy down to 10 degrees.

Indoors prickly pears need a brightly lit position, preferably a south-facing or west-facing aspect or grown in a conservatory or heated greenhouse with good, all-round light. They need 4-6 hours of direct sunshine in summer.

They are not cold or frost hardy, but can be moved outside to a warm, sunny patio in summer. Make sure you bring them back indoors before the weather turns cold in early autumn.

They need a minimum spring and summer temperatures of 18°C (65°F), but prefer cooler temperatures in autumn and winter of 7-13°C (45-55°F) while they’re dormant. Keep them away from direct heat and radiators as well as draughts and fans that cause fluctuating temperatures.

Light: Full Sun,  the plant does well with 4 to 6 hours of direct sunshine and can be moved outdoors to a sunny, warm patio or deck. Take care to bring them back indoors when the cooler temperatures of the autumn months arrive

WateringPrickly pear likes dry conditions, and very little watering is required to maintain the plant. This is why the cactus is often used in low-water gardens. Limit your watering to every two to three weeks or when the soil is completely dry. When watering, simply moisten and don't soak the soil.

Toxicity: Non-toxic to pets and children.  However, beware of the spines and thorns!
