The plant usually grows to a height ranging from 5-12 feet. (As it grows more tree-like, dead leaves remain on the trunk in habitat as a defense against animal munching.) They put out a flower that is a branched candelabra-shaped with yellow to orange flowers.
These are prime healthy young plants about 4-5 inches tall. They are ready for an 8-12 inch pot... and given growing room for their roots will take off! Be sure to give them growing room...

Paddle cactus.JPG (409549 bytes)
Opuntia Pads!
When people ask us which plant they can use to create a fast growing fence, we usually suggest the opuntia. Also called the Paddle Cactus, these plants are very tolerant of almost all environmental conditions and once rooted grow amazingly fast. In a season, a rooted pad will put out a couple of generations of "ears" ... and in a couple of years they rapidly expand in breadth and height.

Very easy care: plant in dry soil, water only after roots come out in a few weeks... sit back and don't do much else. Some water once in a while is about all they require.

You can even eat your fence! The young opuntia pads (not the ones we ship, but the future generations) are known as "nopal" in Latin America and can be chopped into a salad or cooked like a squash. (Of course, they must be skinned and have the spines removed first.) Around here at Cactus Limon, we like cooked in a little oil, then topped with cheese, then topped with salsa. Yum!

Care: Lithops need sufficient light, good ventilation. Plants should be kept totally dry from October until Spring. During this time, the plant will generate a new body, consuming the moisture and nutients of the previous body. Watering can start when the remains of the old plant are shrivelled and dry (around May to July). Allow the soil to completely dry out between waterings. Lithops should be planted in cacti mix with perlite or grit, to ensure good drainage.
Lithops Karasmontana

Lithops are known as living rocks or living stones. They originated in Nambibia and South Africa, where they have become highly adapted to the heat and drought conditions.
The Karasmontana Mickbergensis is a grey colored lithops, with hints of pink, it has a textured top surface. These plants are about 3/4 inch diameter.
Why do they look like stones? Lithops mimic the soil and stones of their natural habitat as camoflage from animals and people. The plantsí body consists of a pair of leaves that have evolved into their primary moisture gathering tool. In some areas where they grow, rainfall may not occur for extended periods, so water conservation of water is vital. The rounded shape of the leaves, evolved to reduce evaporation, gives the plants the appearance of a pebble.
