    You want to pick some up to just cut up and feed, or pick some up to grow.?

    • Most of our International or Mexican markets sell opuntia cactus pads for human consumption. We pick up a few pads every week or so for our Sully. See if there any markets in your area, you might be close!

    I was thinking both, I would like to plant a clipping so I have extra for the summer but also some to feed this week or so.... just acquired my Sulcata two days ago from a store that obviously didn’t have him in the correct habitat (2+ years old and living in a tortoise table, not terrible pyramiding but still they were trying to sell for $850 I ended up paying but not remotely near asking price)

    $850??? Sulcats that size are given away for free. Wishful thinking. Maybe delusional thinking...

    Agreed. Sulcatas are very popular on Craigslist.

    I ordered a pad from etsy to propagate. This seller also offer a larger bunch for feeding out. Very affordable. The pad I received was twice the size of my hand.

    Hello all,
    I recently received a nice package of spineless cactus from the Carolina Pet Supply Company. My Russian Tort, Oliver loves them.

    I hope this was helpful.

    Maybe I should start a side business selling and shipping the stuff...

    I'm in Arizona and it's everywhere! Just picked all this yesterday less than a mile from my house. 20180901_194824.jpeg
