Opuntia rufida is a species of prickly pear cactus known by the scary common name blind prickly pear! It is native to Texas and adjacent Mexico, where it grows on limestone.

The species makes up for its total lack of spines with a profusion of red-brown glochids which it sheds with abandon and is a menace to any gardener. Whether it's true or not the glochids have the reputation of detaching and flying on the wind and can blind cattle.  

Low-maintenance and an excellent choice for anyone new to growing houseplants. This plant will thrive as long as its water only when it's completely dry and kept in a warm and sunny spot. 

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!

We post all our plants to most of the UK, with the exceptions of the Islands of Scotland, the Scottish Highlands, Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man, the Isle of White, the Scilly Isles and the Channel Islands due to the high cost of shipping.

Measurements: The plant heights provided encompass the plant stem and the foliage length, along with the depth of the grow pot, which includes the living root system, and not just the portion of the plant that is visible above the soil level.

Although we strive to provide plants within the specified size range, there may be some instances where the plants supplied could be slightly smaller or larger than the size selected.
