It is a cactus made up of small flattened and almost circular stems which, branching, reach imposing dimensions of over 3 meters in height in nature! These flat cushions (glochids) are of a beautiful light green, in which rounded areolas and long spines, sparse and very thin, of a yellowish-white color stand out. In cultivation Opuntia quitensis tends to maintain a lower and bushy posture, where it is even easier to see its beautiful funnel-shaped diurnal flowers stand out, on the pleasant shades of red-orange, sometimes tinged with yellow.

Plant care:

It likes an exposure to full sun in rather airy locations.

It is preferable to keep it at mild temperatures and never below 3 °C, for this reason it is recommended to shelter it during the winter period.

Water moderately and only when the soil is completely dry. It is enough to water it once a week in spring and summer, reduce it to once every two months in autumn and to suspend it completely in winter.

The best soil is a well-draining one, even better if further enriched with inert materials such as pumice, sand or lapilli.

They do not need frequent fertilization, it is sufficient to dilute the fertilizer with watering once a year.
