Welcome to TheBioDude!
Meet one of the hardiest desert terrarium plants available. The spineless Opuntia Cacti. These cacti are fast growers that thrive in a dry environment with humidity from 5% up to 40%. Grown organically and ethically these cacti are shipped spineless. As the cacti grows you should not have to trim any beginning spines, but it is still recommended to monitor the plant growth. Opuntia can get quite large, but can be easily trimmed for easy care.
