These are two of my more recent "addictions" - and am slowly building on my collections of these two genera - is there anyone else out there who enjoys these plants? (Not to mention, I'm always looking for ones I don't have yet, if you have any leads.) I must say, I am very impressed at the very rapid growth of my P. tectorius and P. utilis plants that I got from Floribunda. They have basically tripled or quadrupled in size, in a few short months. As for the Opuntias, I've always had a few around, but my addiction was ignited when somebody traded me some Opuntia corallicola, which got my blood flowing. They are also growing very fast. One has a new 8 inch pad, in only 2 months.
