Details & Care
The Opuntia galapageia, also known as the Galapagos prickly pear, is an endemic plant species that comes from the Galapagos Islands in the Pacific Ocean. Over millions of years, this type of cactus has evolved into an exceptional species within the Opuntia family, having perfectly adapted to the unique climate and conditions of this volcanic archipelago.

The Opuntia galapageia is a striking specimen with its typical flattened, fleshy and prickly disk-shaped segments. This evergreen succulent produces yellow to orange flowers that usually bloom in late spring or early summer. It is a tree-like cactus that can grow up to 12 metres high in the open ground. Not only its size, but also its defiant spines are a clear adaptation to the tough and dry climate of its natural habitat.

Low maintenance, caring for an Opuntia primarily involves the need for plenty of sunlight. This plant tolerates high temperatures and low humidity, typical of its natural habitat. Watering is limited to the summer months, when once a week is sufficient. During the winter months, the plant enjoys a drier period and only requires sporadic watering.
