Provided with propagation instructions

Opuntia microdasys forms a dense shrub 40–60 cm tall, occasionally more, composed of pad-like stems 6–15 cm long and 4–12 cm broad.

Opuntia microdasys has no spines, but instead has numerous white or yellow glochids 2–3 mm long in dense clusters; these glochids are barbed and thinner than the finest human hairs, detaching in large numbers upon the slightest touch.

If not removed they will cause considerable skin irritation so the plants must be treated with caution.

The Latin specific epithet microdasys means “small and shaggy”.
