would you have access to a piece from one growing in the wild or on your land. either way I can send you all you want in the spring..let me know here, my e-mail doesn't work the best....linda

RE: WANTED: Opuntias

I have some from Michigan Zone 5. I would be willing to trade them for some other cactus cutting(s) or the like. Here's what the cuttings look like: I think they're something like Beavertail Cactus, but I'm not 100% sure. They are Opuntia though, I believe.


RE: WANTED: Opuntias

Linda I think I can get that Jade for you.
Cameron, I do have some cactus cuttings to trade with you.
Email me and I'll let you know what I have.

RE: WANTED: Opuntias

I live in central Texas and have them in my front field. I am not sure of the variety. I think it is either OPhaecantha var major Engelm or O lindheimeri. I can get some other varietiies. :Like cows tougue( O lindheimeria var linguiformis) and a neddleless waxy one, and a large pad fluttery thing.The lastwo I don't think are native.

I have some wild opuntia natives I could trade, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Texas types. I live in Oklahoma and was given some by friends in neighboring states. I would be interested in what cactus cuttings you have.
