    I've traded several of these on the Whatchagot Swap....but I know many don't do the swaps so I"m posting these here.

    I have an almost unlimited supply of small Prickly Pear cactus plants to sell.

    These are amazing plants. They are edible, they have medicinal properties much like the Aloe Vera plant. You can start new plants with just 1 section stuck in dirt, it roots, then you have a new plant!

    Here's a link with tons of info:
    http://www.rain.org/greennet/docs/exoticveggies/html/pricklypear.htm

    They grow virtually anywhere!

    Here's a photo of one of my old ones. The ones I have available could be any color, I just don't know, because they haven't started blooming quite yet.

    I ship these in a small box(can't ship in an envelope), and fit 4 plants in it.

    Price for a box of 4 Prickly Pear INCLUDING shipping is $15.00.

    If interested, you can PM here or email me at [email protected]

    Thanks!

    A few weeks ago we ripped up a 5'x5' bed packed full of these and burned them. Just got tired of them.
