Consolea or Opuntia rubescens is the scientific name of this cactus. Commonly called "Roadkill" cactus because the body of the plant is very flat.  We prefer "cowboy" because of the way the arm pads are growing so perfectly on either side of the plant.  

 Native to Puerto Rico and the Leeward islands, this prickly pear forms a tree to 10' tall in its native habitats.  Not hardy to frost given its' tropical origin.  This prickly pear is dark green, spineless, and loaded with character.  Makes an excellent indoor potted specimen or potted patio plant.  Fast growing.  

Plants are rooted in 1gal containers and will be shipped bare root.  Plants average 12”-18” tall when planted.  



This shop has great customer service. Although they mainly sell pots they also have a few plants to sell. I bought one of these plants and it shipped very fast. The plant I received is beautiful but it was the wrong plant. I contacted the shop right away. I told them I will keep the plant but I’d still want to buy the one I wanted. The plant I wanted also cost less so I offered to pay the difference too. The shop apologized for the mistake and said they will send the right plant right away and to keep the plant i already received. I thought that was awesome, thoughtful and very professional and that goes a long way. Thank you so much and I really appreciate that.


Simply a beautiful and artistic Peety pot. Will be the pot for an Adenia metamorpha and the two will definitely display awesome artistry.
