To be sure this plant should be a bit larger, but when I see this picture I think it could be a Brazilopuntia braziliensis.

RE: ID Please #8

Is it variegated?? (a "pearlization" of green white)...

If it is variegated....

If looks like it "could" be Opuntia linguiformis 'Maverick'

RE: ID Please #8

thanks for your help, i forgot to mension. it is just recovering from having some spider mites. so the white tips are a result of that.

RE: ID Please #8

It is a bit variegated but i sprayed it with garlic water to get rid of the spider mites and it has a few remnants of that witch court the light on the photo, which i thick is what you can see. its is a fairly uniform color. think it is a Brazilopuntia braziliensis?
