We love these crazy cacti for its unusual shape, Opuntia Rubescens Consolea is also known as the Road Kill cactus because of its flat appearance. This plant requires very little pampering to become established. In fact, more die from too much care and watering than from neglect. Make sure you give your Opuntia well-draining soil and lots of sunlight. It's a perfect plant for urban living and a really beautiful and striking plant.
Low-maintenance and an excellent choice for anyone new to growing houseplants. This plant will thrive as long as it's water only when it's completely dry and kept in a warm and sunny spot.
We are selling larger older cactus - these plants have the usual marks and scratches of older cactus, which is beautiful but if you prefer something unmarked why not choose instead one of our younger cactus plants?
Happy Houseplants is the place to buy houseplants - whether it’s large indoor plants (UK), mini houseplants or succulents for sale. We have the plants and the knowledge and we really enjoy sharing our passion for houseplants with you, our customers.
As a special touch, if you’re buying a plant as a houseplant gift, we’ll add in a free, handwritten card - just leave your message at checkout and we’ll do the rest!
